Hakla demands proper policy for Mobile schools

Excelsior Correspondent
POONCH, July 12: Shamsher Hakla Poonchi a prominent Gujjar leader and intellectual of J&K, has expressed concern that many mobile schools do not move with the Gujjar and Bakerwal tribes when they go to upper reaches during summer season due to which the education of their children have suffered.
In a statement issued here, today Hakla said majority of mobile schools have been converted to stationery schools by the Government and nowadays only few mobile schools are left. This is the reason that the Gujjars and Bakerwals are far behind in the field of education and they are still backward.
Hakla urged to the Lieutenant Governor of J&K Union Territory, Manoj Sinha to frame strong policy for ensuring the proper functioning of mobile schools in Jammu and Kashmir for nomadic people.
He urged the Government of India for opening of boarding schools on pattern of Narvodaya Vidyalaya for Gujjar-Bakarwal girls and boys in all districts of UT.
Hakla appealed to Government of India for establishing a Tribal University in J&K for Gujjar Bakarwal students.
