Disaster management as full-time subject starts in JK


InsertEducation Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Altaf Bukhari during has made an announcement to introduce disaster management as a full-time compulsory subject at the University of Kashmir.

“There is a need to educate people about disaster management as the state of Jammu and Kashmir falls in the high seismic zone and teaching the subject at the University of Kashmir alone cannot cater to the need of raising awareness among the people,” the students said.

The minister while appreciating the students’ suggestion said these kinds of recommendations from the students are always welcome and instills a sense of responsibility towards the state and being a vigilante citizen.

“I assure you my full support. Separate posts of teachers for this particular subject will be referred to the Public Service Commission,” the minister said, adding the government led by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti will provide full support to such innovative ideas and suggestions.
