Itagar, May 6: The Adi Students Union (AdiSU) has urged the state government to adopt a method or system through which the fund meant for uniforms can be transferred directly to the School Magement Committees (SMCs) so that the students can procure their uniforms themselves.
The union claimed that the present system of distribution of school uniforms is not benefitting most of the students, Taking strong exception to the encroachment of school lands in various Adi inhabited areas and districts, AdiSU in a meeting today decided to adopt zero tolerance approach against the land grabbers to free encroached school lands from their illegal occupation.
The students union also appealed to the authorities concerned to take up their own course of action against illegal land encroachment.
AdiSU also informed that the hospital in Tuting run by Karu Trust has fell short on basic infrastructure, doctors, particularly a gynecologist, and other paramedical staff.
The lone doctor of the hospital said, “Since the Tuting-Yingkiong road is not predictable, the hospital urgently needs a gynecologist for safe hospital delivery”. Highlighting the hardship and various problems faced by the people of the remote border areas due to lack of proper health, education, road and telecommunication facilities, AdiSU urged the state government to pay attention to these problems and mitigate the sufferings of the people.
