School on edge of Nallah Sindh a threat to students
Ramwari (Kangan) July 1: A school located at the edge of Nallah Sindh in this north Kashmir village poses threat to the lives of students.
“Our children are under constant threat,” they said. Residents fear that building may collapse anytime as the the major portion of the land in front of it has been washed-out.
“The building is dangerously close to the river now and a tragedy can happen any day,” said Abdul Rahim. Locals said they have approached the Education Department on many occasions and have apprised them about the problems faced by their children. “However, officials didn’t pay any attention towards our pleas,” they added.
“We have to escort students during morning assembly, lunch time and even if they go to a toilet” said a teacher.
“Authorities should construct a retaining wall or bund along the banks of river Sindh to safeguard the lives of children,” said Ghulam Muhammad Raina, local Sarpanch.
He said that he has taken up the matter of constructing a retaining wall with the higher officials of the Education Department. “They have assured me that the same will be constructed as soon as possible,” he added.
Zonal Education Officer (ZEO) Hariganiwan said that they have sent proposal letter to Rural Development Department for construction of the bund along the River Sindh near middle school Ramwari last year.
