Senior PDP leader and MLC Muhammad Khurshid Alam on Friday said coalition government led by Mufti Muhammad Sayeed has pledged to focus on education of students from Old City.
"It was on the direction of the CM that Rs 30 lakh will be spent out of MLC CDF on government run schools in Old City. This will help to impart quality education to the kids enrolled there. The amount shall be forwarded to the Director School Education Kashmir so that the plans to develop the Old City schools are taken on fast track basis," Alam said in a statement.
"Earlier these schools have witnessed the official apathy in terms of delay in funds over renovating the dilapidated school buildings and other infrastructure due to the inaction and inefficiency of the previous regimes. The smart class rooms shall be introduced in these government schools so that children could attain education at par with the private institutions," he said.
