Accusing the government of ruining the academic carrier of Kashmiri students, MLA Langate Er Rasheed has said that there is no justification in declaring summer vacations for the Kashmir province from July 6.
In a statement issued today Er Rasheed said: "While most of the working days in educational institutions in Kashmir have been wasted due to law and order problem mostly created by barbarism of security agencies in colleges and schools, state government seems to have given up to Syed Salah-ud-din's calendar. Since the UJC chief has announced a series of events and programmers to mark the first anniversary of renowned militant commander Burhan Wani, the government finding itself short of options to deal with the issue has decided to close the educational institutions in the name of summer vacations. The summer vacations are usually declared when it gets very hot. However this year the temperatures are found to be comparatively moderate."
Er Rasheed said that the Govt.'s decision to declare summer vacations is yet again ample proof to conclude that militant leadership enjoys mass support at the ground and people follow their calls and calendars. He further added that by succumbing to Syed Salah-ud-din's calendar programme, New Delhi's propaganda campaign against Syed Salah-ud-din after he being declared a `terrorist' has fallen flat.
