Pulwama: In a very unique way, Deputy Commissioner Pulwama on Tuesday handed over his chair to students of Government Higher Secondary School Karimabad to boost a passion for administrative services among them.
The programme was organized under Pulwama Youth Mission IAS wherein several officers including SSP Pulwama participated.
Fifty students of Government Higher Secondary School Karimabad, including 29 girls and 21 boys, were called to DC office Pulwama and everyone was given a few minutes to sit on chair of DC Pulwama and act as District Magistrate. Students were seen listening to the grievances of the people and referring issues to concerned authorities as well.
Students on the occasion were seen very energetic and happy while listening and discussing issues of the people. “We are very happy today and such initiatives are developing an energy to work hard and qualify high level competitive exams so as to work for the welfare of the society,” a student told a local news agency, Kashmir News Observer.
Students expressed gratitude to the District administration, especially Deputy Commissioner Pulwama, for organizing such programmes and hoped that more such initiatives will be started so as to attract more and more youth towards competitive exams, especially administrative services who can work for the welfare of society at different levels.
Deputy Commissioner Pulwama Basheer Ul Haq Choudhary on the occasion said that our sole aim behind organizing this programme is to develop positive energy concepts among youth and to attract them towards administrative services.
“We want to make them understand that they too can get this chair and even higher ranks and then contribute for the welfare of society in different sectors provided they choose a positive road map and work hard,” they said.
