Expressing deep anguish over the 'killing' of teenage boy Qaisar Ahmed, senior CPI(M) leader M Y Tarigami has demanded judicial probe to ascertain the circumstances that led to the killing of teenage boys. He also castigated the government for what he called "confusing the students."
He said it is an irony that brute force is applied without any break in Valley and no one from lower to top seems to be accountable before any authority.
Castigating government for its new exam policy for class 10 and 12 students, Tarigami said that the decision of the government has confused students. "From past three months all the schools, colleges and universities in Kashmir are closed and the irony is that when education is being taken seriously across globe, our valley has been witnessing zero education. Unfortunately hundreds of students have suffered injuries from pellets and bullets while some of them have lost vision. Despite this there are people in society who are concerned about the deteriorating condition of education system in the Valley," he said and condemned the actions of arsonists for burning schools.
"The requirement of education will not get fulfilled by reducing the syllabus. What matters is content and eligibility. Government should not ruin the careers of students by politicizing the issue," he said and added that people cutting across party line should help in opening schools in the Valley.
