Students write to CM with plea to save their school building
Students of a primary school wrote a letter to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, urging her to save their school building. The expansion of the road from Rampurhat to Tarapith led to a possibility of breaking a sizable portion of the school building sparking tension among the students and their guardians.
The little students wrote a letter to the Chief Minister requesting her to save the building of Barashal Dakshin Chakra Primary School. The Rampurhat-Tarapith Development Authority has initiated the expansion project from Rampurhat to Tarapith Road.
The school building would have to be broken down for the work to go on as per the present plan.
“The classes, kitchen and play field will be abolished from the school map. The students are really depressed about this,” said head teacher Bidhan Chandra Mondal.
“I approved the letter written by the students which was sent to Chief Minister’s office by post,” said Mondal. The school committee received a letter from Birbhum Highway Division 1 recently, which stated that a portion of the school will be broken including its boundary wall.
The school committee soon informed the matter to chairman of the district inspector (primary) Raja Ghosh. Ghosh brought this matter to District Magistrate.
The guardians alleged that the building is age-old. If a portion of the building was bulldozed, then the total building could collapse. “This is an old building. There is no pillar. If the building was broken into 12 foot inside, the total building will collapse. The students have urged the Chief Minister to save their school,” Mondal added.
