Children to go for “Wadi Ki Sair” fortnightly.
The Jammu and Kashmir Government on Monday re-introduced fortnightly ‘Wadi Ki Sair’ train for school children in the Valley.
The train service was introduced in December 12, last year, when Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had travelled from Banihal with students of different schools.
Altaf Bukhari, Education Minister, Jammu and Kashmir said, ?We are endeavouring to provide exposure to the kids in the Valley. They must be aware of their environment and surroundings as to what is happening around them. We are glad that students have been so receptive about this decision. Soon, we will conduct debate contests, fairs and plethora of such events for the development of our students.?
Students, despite being in Kashmir, have never seen Kashmir so far.
The ‘Wadi Ki Sair’ would run on every second and fourth Sunday of the month from Banihal in Jammu region to Baramulla in north Kashmir via Qazigund, Anantnag, Srinagar and Badgam. Jammu and Kashmir Education Minister Altaf Bukhari re- inaugurated this special train for children.
