The students of the lone school for physically challenged children in Jammu and Kashmir held a protest demonstration here on Tuesday, 14th August, 2012 against the state government demanding setting up of educational institute for higher education for them.
Students, mostly girls, assembled at the compound of the school at Shaheedi Chowk here and held protest demonstration against the government for its failure to support the school financially. "There is no institute of higher education after class tenth in J&K for physically challenged children and government has totally failed during the past 66 years to provide right to higher education for these children," principal of the school R.K. Bhan told reporters here.
Bhan said that they are running the school only on the donations. "We get a meagre amount of 70,000 annually for running this school for which we seek donations of over 8 lakh annually for smooth conduct of the school", he said, adding that out of this 70,000, they have to pay back 40,000 as rent of the building to the government. The government boosts of 100 per cent success of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) when the 10 per cent of the population are physically handicapped, he alleged.
