New Delhi- The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference Member of Parliament from Anantnag Hasnain Masoodi on Tuesday raised a number of issues concerning Jammu and Kashmir in the Lok Sabha.
Drawing the attention of the government on the deteriorating security situation in Kashmir with each passing day, he said, "Yesterday’s Police Bus attack and other incident, total strike in Ladakh smacks of the rapidly deteriorating security political and security situation in the entire region," he said reiterating his demand for short discussion on the evolving situation.
Masoodi also raised the issue of teachers of migrant schools set up for Tribals, migrating with their livestock from Jammu to higher reaches of Kashmir during summer and from Kashmir to Jammu.
Expressing his concern over the tribulations faced by these teachers, he said that the schools are closed during winter/ summer and teachers are hence disengaged for six months. This he said, breaks continuity and affects the education, impacting the benefits intended. He demanded that all these teachers be placed in a cadre and integrated with the education department of the concerned zone to serve in other schools and redeployed to schools for migrant tribals on their return to the zone- Jammu/ Kashmir.
