J-K: Kathua school gets facelift after Class 3 student’s video appeal to PM goes viral


Days after a Class 3 student urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a video message to ensure basic facilities at her school in Kathua district, the Jammu and Kashmir administration has started work to give it a facelift.

Seerat Naaz’s appeal in a video to the prime minister last week, which was shared widely on social media, prompted Director of School Education, Jammu, Ravi Shankar Sharma to visit the government school in the remote Lohai-Malhar block.

“Assalam Alaikum Modiji. Kaise ho aap…aap sab ki baat suntey ho, meri bhi baat suno (Hello, Modiji. How are you? You listen to everyone, please listen to me also),” Naaz said in the beginning of her over four-minute video.
