Independent lawmaker and MLA Langate Er Rasheed on Saturday unlocked a school at Dard Haji Rajwar area of north Kashmir’s Handwara where not even a single teacher was on duty.
Er Rasheed reached the venue at around 11:00 AM and found around fifty students waiting for their teachers, who had not been attending the school since many days in this remote area.
Er Rasheed along with the villagers broke the main door of the school and let students in. He later started teaching the students himself. The matter was brought in the notice of Commissioner Secretary Education who deputed the officers from district administration and Deputy Commissioner Kupwara to the spot.
Taking the strong notice of deputy CEO’s carelessness and negligence, the government placed deputy CEO under suspension with immediate effect and posted three teachers in the said school.
Er Rasheed has appealed government officials to take care of their duties and serve the people the way they deserve.
Er Rasheed added that people in his constituency will respect all those who will discharge their duties while serving in his constituency but at the same time will ensure a stern action against those looting the public money or showing negligence while discharging their duties.
