Vice-Chairman State Advisory Board for Gujjars and Bakerwals Chaudhary Zaffar Ali on Sunday said education is the best and the least expensive way to fight poverty and ignorance in underprivileged Gujjars and Bakerwal communities of the state.

"I request you to please educate your children, no matter what the circumstances are, and know your rights and duties," said Zaffar addressing one-day national sammelan on reservations organized by All India Confederation of ST/SC/OBC organizations (JK) at Town Hall Kupwara on Sunday.

Speakers said that reservation is a constitutional right to STs and it should continue as the condition of the down-trodden people in the society has not changed as yet and majority of them are living in abject poverty and backwardness.
