STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Shiv Sena, Jammu and Kashmir unit on Tuesday demanded promotion of all students of Jammu and Kashmir in first, second and final year, to next grade without any examination. Party J&K President Manish Sahni, while highlighting his demand, said that cases of COVID-19 are increasing rapidly in entire country including J&K and there is a danger of contagion entering community transmission phase. Sahni appealed to the Lieutenant Governor for issuing necessary instructions to concerned authorities for promoting students to next standard without any exam. “Future of students should be secured. According to guidelines issued by UGC, keeping in mind the safety and health of students, grading should be done with 50 per cent marks depending on previous grading. In situations, where grading of previous semester or year is not available like first year students, a 100 per cent assessment can be done on basis of internal assessment. If student wants to improve grade, he can appear in exam during next semester,” he suggested. Sahni further said that in Maharashtra, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has decided to promote all students of 1st, 2nd and final year to next level as per grading of last semester. “Party’s National Youth unit has also appealed to the Chief Ministers of other states to take a similar decision for welfare of students. Moreover, J&K Government has also decided to promote students of class 1st to class 9th and 11th to next level without any examination,” he added.
