State Project Director SSA, Abdul Rashid War, Joint Director (Planning), Javed Iqbal Mattoo and Joint Director (Education), Jammu, Charandeep Singh, were also present in the occasion.
Emphasising upon ensuring safety of school-going children, Secretary School Education said the Department will work out a mechanism to demolish all such buildings which are declared unsafe after the safety audit, adding that the Department has already initiated the process of laying new and upgrading existing infrastructure with all added paraphernalia so that an enabling environment is in place while imparting education to our children, who are the nation builders of tomorrow.
