There are complaints from various parts of Kashmir that private coaching centres are functioning even as the government has closed them down due to the second wave of covid-19.
Private coaching centres have become money earning machines both for the management and teachers, at this greed for money is forcing them to play with the lives of students.
It is in place to mention that the government has closed down all the educational institutions for physical classes in entire Jammu and Kashmir as there is a steep rise in covid infection.
Reporting one such incident from Handwara, KNS in its report said that the government on Friday sealed two coaching centres for violating SOPs amid ongoing COVID-19 surge in Handwara of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
According to sources, the two coaching centres, ‘Apex classes and Shaheen public school, were closed by a team led by Naib-Tehsildar Handwara along with police.
“The closed-down institutes were found violating the government orders regarding the closure of all sorts of physical classwork in schools and coaching centres,” the official said.
Naib Tehsildar, Bashir Ahmed along with SHO Handwara also intensified the market checking to implement the government guidelines in the surge of Covid19.
