Srinagar, June 14 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, scores of students from border areas have failed to take regular online classes either due to poor internet connectivity or they don’t have an internet facility at all.
According to Kashmir Media Service, Syed Aahil Ali, student of Upper Kindergarten from Kamalkote village of Uri sector in a video has appealed the authorities to install mobile networks in their area so that their future could be saved.
The video has gone viral on social media networks where the student was heard to say about the problems that students are facing due to the pandemic.
“Due to Covid-19 all the government and private schools are closed in Jammu and Kashmir. However the authorities have taken good steps of online classes, but many students could not take online classes due to no internet connectivity in their areas”, said Abdul Majeed Khan of Uri.
Sources said that there are scores of villages in far-flung areas of Jammu and Kashmir, like Uri, Gurez in Bandipora district, Kalaroos, Chowkibal, Tangdhar and Teetwal of Kupwara district where there is no internet connectivity due to which students of Primary and Higher classes couldn’t take online classes.
At many places like of Kamalkote the tower was installed by the Jio telecommunication company but it has not yet activated these towers due to which students are facing tremendous problems.
Another student from the same village appealed the authorities that the mobile tower has been installed but that is not working, due to which they lose their online classes. She shared a video talking about her problems where she said that due to the lack of mobile network in the village, she couldn’t take online classes.
