Jammu and Kashmir govt schools to be renamed after martyrs

The Jammu and Kashmir administration as a tribute to the martyrs has decided to name government- run schools after the Indian army soldiers, CRPF men, and Jammu and Kashmir police personnel who sacrificed their lives for the nation.

In an official notice, Divisional Commissioner Jammu has asked local authorities of all the 10 districts of Jammu region –Jammu, Doda, Reasi, Poonch, Rajouri, Kathua, Samba, Ramban, Kishtwar and Udhampur to identify government schools.

As per reports, a committee may be framed at district level to prepare such details after verification. Senior superintendent of police, assistant deputy commissioner, assistant commissioner (panchayat), or a representative of the army can be included in the committee to finalize the list at the district level.

Udhampur district commissioner Indu Chib said that they have identified eight to nine government schools but list is yet to be finalized.

Currently this order has been passed in Jammu but will also be issued similarly in Kashmir soon.

Punjab government had recently announced to rename 14 more schools in various districts of the state after freedom fighters and other renowned personalities. In 2019, Rajasthan had also passed a proposal to rename 15 government schools in different districts of the state after martyrs.
