The DC, accompanied by DDSE Mallo Yam Gollo and officers of the education department, visited around 40 schools in the Itanagar area and took stock of the condition of the schools’ infrastructure and various problems faced by the schools.

He also interacted with the principals, headmasters, teachers in-charge and the school management committees and enquired about enrollment of students and availability of subject teachers in their respective schools.

The school authorities apprised the DC of various important issues, such as encroachment on school land, boundary wall, land allotment, shortage of peon, chowkidar, etc. The DC said he would look into the issues.

Potom said he would visit the rest of the schools in the capital region soon.
