It’s alright when an institution lacks a facility. Authorities learn to manage though unsatisfactorily and cribbing. But when raising of essential facility is left half way for years signifying neglect, it’s painfully discouraging and poorly reflecting. Under construction multipurpose hall suffering neglect for years at Govt. Girls Higher Secondary School Miran Sahib being used as parking lot ideally reflects the latter.
GGHSS Miran Sahib is an old institution deserving to be declared a heritage school. Over 450 students are enrolled. To provide for exigencies of inclement weather or letting students be addressed by guest speakers collectively besides morning assembly, there is no provision. Collective essential school activity is at the mercy of weather.
S.S. Bijral former IGP and State Convener Beti Bachao Beti Padhao project said that when he held a seminar there on ‘Beta Hi kyon Beti Kyon Nahin’ topic, the students squatted on ground in open in warm weather. He said a 40’x50’ spacious hall with brick masonry and lentil provided without flooring, plastering, wood work and other essentialities raised in 2013 under Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan is awaiting completion in school premises. It’s not lying idle. Though not serving students it’s planned for, it serves as a parking lot.
Bijral, state spokesperson of BJP, stressed for the need for its priority completion without further delay for utilization of govt funds to benefit students.
