Efforts to re-open colleges in Valley fail after students don't report
Srinagar, Oct 09: The efforts of the Jammu and Kashmir administration to reopen colleges in the Valley on Wednesday failed as students did not report to classwork, on the 66th consecutive day since the abrogation of the state"s special status under Article 370 on August 5.
Divisional Commissioner Kashmir Baseer Khan had last week announced that the schools would reopen on October 3 and the colleges on October 9 in Kashmir.
The staff reported for work at the colleges but the students stayed away, officials said.
Students also have not attended schools despite the administration"s several attempts.
