Govt fulfills PM's promise to Uri school in less than 24 hrs

A day after PM Narendra Modi told a gathering in Uri that the local Kendriya Vidyalaya would begin to enrol students for Class 11 from this month, HRD officials went into a tizzy on Saturday trying to clear all formalities.

“In flat two hours, all hurdles were cleared to allow the Uri KV to start the class 11 from this academic year”, said a senior ministry official. Currently, students in Uri have to travel 30 kms away to Srinagar for higher secondary education.

Pressing officials into swift clearance of proposals comes in the backdrop of Modi’s own advise to the bureaucracy to cut the red tape. In his meeting with all departmental secretaries last month, Modi had said, “One attains moksha (salvation) by travelling to Chaar Dham. But files go in circles to 32 dhams without attaining salvation. Limit the file movements to Chaar Dham”.

During his first J&K trip as the PM on Friday, Modi, in his speech on dedicating the Uri-II hydropower project to the nation had announced that by June the Kendriya Vidyalaya would start enrolling students from Class 11— a long-standing demand of the locals.
