JAMMU, Sept 27: Sarpanch Halqa Panchayat Joura Kalan, Tehsil Kahara, Anil Kumar has appealed to the Governor Satya Pal Malik to sanction a Government Degree College (GDC) for Tehsils Kahara and Chiralla.
He appealed to the Governor to select the site of the college at some central place between Higher Secondary School Malanoo (Inderwal constituency) and Higher Secondary School Halaran (Bhaderwah Constituency) which is accessible to all the students of both Tehsils.
Anil Kumar said that many Government employees and Army personnel of these Tehsils have kept their families at Headquarter Thathri for the education of their children.
“The rent rates are higher than even those at Jammu, Doda or Kishtwar districts. The people can’t afford such high rents in addition to other essential expenses”, Kumar stated and stressed for opening of the Degree College for the benefit of the students of Tehsils Kahara and Chiralla.
