TIA/ Special correspondent

NEW DELHI: The government of India has expressed happiness over the reopening of schools and colleges in the Kashmir valley.

According to reports most of the schools and colleges have reopened on Monday, disregarding a call by one of the Hurriyat leaders.

The Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram in a statement has appealed to all sections of the people in Jammu and Kashmir to ensure that all schools and colleges function normally.

“Government is happy to learn that most schools and colleges have reopened in Jammu and Kashmir and most students have return back to school/college today”, Chidambaram said.

The Hurriyat (Geelani) group has reportedly gave a call to parents asking them not to send their children to school/college.

“Happily, parents have disregarded that call and sent their children to schools/colleges”, a home ministry statement said.

There were also report of a few minor incidents of stone-pelting on school buses at Habak, Bemina and Nowgam. ‘How can any right thinking person pelt stones on school buses? I hope that such mischief will stop immediately’, asks home minister.

The minister said that anyone who has the interest of the children at heart cannot indulge in stone-pelting; nor should anyone support such mischievous attempts to interfere with the functioning of schools and colleges.

Chidambaram hoped that few schools and colleges that remained closed Monday out of caution, would reopen Tuesday. ‘I am also confident that the attendance will improve significantly on Tuesday’.

The home minister appealed all sections of the people of J&K, especially parents, to cooperate with the State Government to ensure that all schools and colleges function normally”.

Meanwhile the Jammu and Kashmir government has assured the people that  every effort would be made to ensure that all schools and colleges reopen and function normally and that security will be provided to enable the students to attend schools and colleges.
