Itagar, April 21:The Adi Students Union (AdiSU) has written to education minister alleging misappropriation of fund by DDSE, East Siang.

The union alleged that state government had provided fund for renovation of existing infrastructure (Rs one crore, thirty lakhs), procurement of school furniture (Rs forty eight lakhs) and provision for water tank in the govt. schools (Rs. Eighteen Lakhs) for the elementary and secondary education of district. The funds were made available for the period of year 2015-16.

However, the AdiSU alleged that schools of district continue to be in dilapidated condition.

“No renovation has been done barring one or two schools. Furniture has not been provided to the school and provision of drinking water is out of question. We found this after our team visited various schools, interacted with principals, headmasters and other authorities,” the union alleged.

Further it alleged that bills have already been withdrawn against the works. They have sought constitution of an SIT to properly investigate the matter.

“The schemes should be re-implemented by creating a genuine verification board. We seek immediate action against DDSE and all the other officials involved in the corruption,” the union pointed out.

Meanwhile, the AdiSU also appealed for early release of pending amount for construction of Model College at Jemi-Notko, Jia village under Lower Dibang Valley district. Union claimed that out of Rs 8 crore approved for construction of college, the government of Aruchal has only released Rs 2 crore in the fincial year 2013-14
