As the authorities have been delaying the process of filling the vacant posts of teachers in Government Boys Higher Secondary School (BHSS) Mandi, Poonch, the students of the school claimed that their studies are badly affected.

As per the students, there is no teacher of Physics and Urdu subjects in the school for the 11th and 12th standard students while students of 9th and 10th class also face shortage of teachers.

Abbas Latif, a 10th standard student of the school said, “There is no teacher of Mathematics for the students of 9th class since last year.”

“Owing to the shortage of teachers in our school, our future is limping towards darkness,” he said.

Mushtaq Ahmed, the 12th standard student of the school claimed that there is no teacher of Urdu and Physics for 11th and 12th standard students.
