From Our Correspondent

TURA, April 25: An inspection by the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) karyakartas of Pa Togan Vibhag, Garo Hills has brought to light the deplorable conditions that prevail at the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV), Mahendraganj in South West Garo Hills.
“We recently conducted an inspection of the hostel facilities at Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV), Mahendraganj in South West Garo Hills. Shockingly, our visit revealed a distressing state of affairs, with the infrastructure in a deplorable condition — old, broken, and poorly maintained. The environment was unclean and unhygienic, especially the mess facilities responsible for providing food to the hostelers,” the organisation said, while demanding better conditions are maintained.
The organisation also met the school Principal, Abdul Gani, to deliberate over the unacceptable conditions, where there was a distinct lack of satisfactory response. Despite assurances of ongoing repairs, the situation observed during the inspection was far from satisfactory, it added.
Meanwhile, the organisation has issued a one-month ultimatum to the authorities of JNV, Mahendraganj, demanding that not only all broken infrastructure be repaired but also the implementation of stringent measures to ensure proper maintenance.
Pointing out that such an action is imperative for the welfare of the students and faculty members, the organisation urged that necessary steps be taken by the authorities within the given time frame or it would have no alternative but to take stronger measures to rectify the situation.
