Swine flu scare amid lack of protection mechanism
SRINAGAR, Feb 25: The deadly outbreak of swine flu in Kashmir has caught the people across the valley by extreme panic. With the non availability of H1N1 protective stuff in the valley hospitals and drug stores, people are caught in the grip of intense scare. The valley has been facing an acute shortage of H1N1 vaccines and N93/N95 masks leaving most of the people to cover their faces with whatsoever stuff they find particularly the ordinary masks which according to health experts do not provide a person with the protection against the virus. While the N93/N95 masks can provide more than 90 percent protection from the virus the vaccine can give only 80 percent protection against the disease.

BOSE remains headless,exams on cards
SRINAGAR, Feb 23: The state Board of School Education (BOSE) is still without a chairman and secretary, even as examinations for Class 10 and 12 are few days away. According to a temporary arrangement, either of the posts has been bestowed to a low ranking officer. “As per BOSE guidelines, a chairman has to have a doctorate. However, joint secretary (secrecy), without having requisite qualification, has been assigned to manage the posts with specific powers. It’s shame because there is no scarcity of meritorious officials in the state. It has badly affected the overall functioning, especially as examination sessions in both Kashmir and Jammu provinces are just days away,” official sources told Kashmir Reader on Sunday. In the absence of a chairman and secretary, the policy matters, dep...

Will file a PIL in this regard
