Deputy Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Nirmal Singh today said that the state government is trying its best to ensure that schools in the state are opened at the earliest.
"Both the central government and the state government will do whatever will be required. Our priority is that schools should reopen and we are doing whatever is required for it. I have talked to the Chief Minister about it," Singh told the media.
The unrest in Kashmir is continuing for more than 69 days now and it has affected the normal life badly.
More than 80 people have been killed and thousands have been left injured in the aftermath of the killing of the Hizbul militant Burhan Wani by the Indian security forces on July 8.
