Imphal, April 8 (NNN): Liangmai Naga Katimai Ruangdi (LNKR), Imphal unit has unearth the sorry state of affairs of Tamei subdivision in Tamenglong district regarding the government schools (both primary and junior high school level).
The LNKR, the Liangmai students` body during its educational campaign since March 16 has come across extremely pathetic condition of infrastructure in the subdivision.
The student leaders said in most cases, the schools are being run in near-make-shift structures. There have also been cases were bamboos are being used as benches. “A black-board of a school is supposed to be black in colour but at one school we noticed one brown-board,” said Majibuibou, president of LNKR, Imphal unit.
At Lamlaba village, there is just one teacher running the whole government junior high school, said the LNKR.
Primary and junior high schools in villages like Dikiuram, Lenglong, Konphung and Kawalong are facing the problem of teaching staff shortage, according to the Liangmai students` body.
LNKR, Imphal unit president said the question of life-risk cropped up as the students are studying a battered and worn-out structures supposed to be school buildings. The LNKR then appealed the state government to address the plight of the students in Tamei subdivision at the earliest or else “we will take our anguish to the streets soon.”
“For how long are we going to remain mute over this condition,” fumes Majibuibou. The LNKR, Imphal unit chief also asks, “Why does the state government continue to neglect our area for this long.”
