He said the department cannot tolerate irresponsible behaviour of school staff particularly heads of the institutions. “There will be action if teachers won’t take their job seriously,” he said.

The students enrolled in government schools should be our priority and teachers should treat them as their own children, he said.

Pertinently, the educational institutions remained closed for over four months in wake of the Government of India’s decision to abrogate special status of J&K (Article 370) and to bifurcate the erstwhile State into two Union Territories—J&K and Ladakh on August 05, last year.
