He laid stress on the overall personality development of students.
Dr Masoodi in his speech congratulated the qualifiers. He said that people of Kupwara are showing their real worth in every field. Few years ago people would shy of being villagers for lack of exposure but now they are showing their real worth.
CEO Kupwara Abdul Hamid said that most of the students who have qualified competitive exams are the products of government schools which is reply to those who raise questions on the quality of government schools.
Tabinda Gani Memorial Society which has came into being few years ago renders awards every year to those who qualify different competitive exams.
