KURSEONG, 25 NOV: The GJMM has now clapped prohibitory orders against the use of cell phones and two-wheelers by students, including college goers.
Forbidding the use of cell phones and two-wheelers by students in the hills yesterday during a programme at Kashyong, Pedong in Kalimpong, the GJMM chief, Mr Bimal Gurung said that most students misused cell phones by storing objectionable photos and movies in the gadgets, which is a dangerous trend. “Hence, to develop a clean society with moral values, we have to curb the use of mobile phones in the student community,” he said.
He also added that besides cell phones, the students would also not be allowed to use two-wheelers. According to him, several accidents have been reported in the hills from rash two-wheeler riding. “In view of the students’s interest we are taking this step. The Education Monitoring Cell and institution heads have been informed of the decision,” he said.
