GUWAHATI: A number of rickety and rusty vehicles have been gathering dust on the premises of Guwahati Blind High School for the past four/five years. The scene is in stark contrast to the State government’s avowed policy of cleanliness.
Cleanliness is the recurring motif of the BJP-led coalition government in Assam. This is quite in sync with the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre, over the years. Won’t such a reckless dumping of rickety and rusty vehicle on the premises of a school meant for blind students have any adverse impact on the students’ health?
Talking to The Sentinel on the matter, Pratibondi Suraksha Sanstha, Assam (PSSA) secretary Nripen Malakar said: “The State government speaks of cleanliness. Cleanliness is a must in schools. How come all such unused rickety vehicles kept for years on the premises of a school for blind students? We’ve raised the issue many a time. However, our pleas continue to fall on deaf years of the department.”
Malakar further said: “The Social Welfare Department has proposed to upgrade Guwahati Blind High School to a Higher Secondary school. All the rickety vehicles should be removed from the school premises at the earliest possible.” The exact number of vehicles kept lying on the school premises could not be ascertained as the vehicles have shrubs and creepers thickly gown around them.
