‘Mismanagement’ mars functioning of Bandipora Anganwadi centres
Bandipora, June 30: The parents of children attending Anganwadi centres in this district have alleged gross mismanagement in these centres.
“The centres in Kehnusa, Mangnipora, Aragam, Kaloosa, Mantrgam, Kralpora, Ongam, Kema, Turkkpora, Nusoo, Dachigam and Kunan remain closed most of the times leaving the children in lurch,” the parents said, adding the concerned officials had turned blind eye towards the issue despite repeated pleas.
Sources revealed that a team of officials of the Social Welfare department recently inspected 10 Anganwadi centres and found the employees absent from the duty. “The centres at Sonarwani, Mantrigam, Sheikh Mohalla Kalan had not been opened by 1 PM. At the centre in Mantrigam, only 12 of the total 22 enrolled children were present and at Khenusa, only seven of the 21 children were present. At Mangnipora, only two of the 21 children were in the centre,” sources revealed.
During inspection, sources said the District social Welfare Officer, Muhammad Ashraf had recommended strict action against the Anganwadi workers.
“I have directed all the supervisors to ensure proper attendance of the children,” Ashraf told Greater Kashmir.
He said surprise checks of the centres would be again conducted and those found absent would be punished under rules.
