AKDDSU tour reveals plight of govt. schools

ITANAGAR, Oct 14: A team of All Kra Daadi District Student’s Union (AKDDSU) recently visited various government run schools in Tali, Pipsorang and Gangte circles to conduct the health and education survey, where they found most of the schools in very bad shape and without road connectivity.
“Most of the schools are located in inaccessible areas. There are no textbooks and teaching materials, like chalk pencils and blackboards etc in many schools,” said APDDSU President Gora Rikam in a release.
Further, many schools were found non-functional and are existing in paper only, he said.
During their series of awareness programmes, the team discouraged child marriage and roaming in social media by under-aged students. During the programmes, the students were advised not to carry mobile phones with them in school campus.
The team also educated the villagers and Panchayat leaders on the future consequences deforestation in large scale in the name plantation of cardamom cultivation in the district, leading to ecological imbalance and global warming.
AKDDSU also interacted with all the teaching staff and appealed them for imparting quality education to the students and discharge duty with sincerity.
The students union appealed to the State Government for timely release of salaries of SSA and RAMSA teachers, so that they can devote to their noble profession without facing any hardships.
Meanwhile, AKDDSU appealed to the Deputy Commissioner Pige Ligu not to release the 2nd installment of fund under Multi Sector Development Programme under Ministry of Tribal Affairs for construction of buildings for health and education sector stating that there had been lots of complaints from the villagers.
As per the villagers, the construction works are not being done as per the detailed project report (DPR), AKDDSU said, and demanded a thorough enquiry into it.
AKDDSU also appealed to the Deputy Commissioner to inspect all the schemes implemented in the district under Tribal Affairs ministry and constitute a committee to inspect the ST Girls Hostel building in the district.
“The ST Girls’ Hostel sanctioned under Ministry of Tribal Affairs has not been constructed as per the DPR. It was sanctioned for double-storey building but it has been made a SPT building,” the students’ union claimed.
AKDDSU will submit its findings to the Kra Daadi Deputy Commissioner on October 23.
