Students lock school in Madhya Pradesh; stage dharna for new building

  |   India News

Students of a school in Chhattarpur run by the Madhya Pradesh government have locked the institute and are staging a sit-in to demand a bigger building and better infrastructure. The Naharpur Higher Secondary School at Gaurihar block in the district is running out of just four rooms over the last 30 years despite upgradation in its status.

“The school was initially up to Std 8. It was upgraded as a high school (till Std 10) in 1987 and later as a higher secondary (till Std 12) in 2013.

“But it has just four rooms and all our requests for constructing a proper building has gone unheeded all these years,” said local sarpanch Jairam Patel yesterday.

Miffed over the lack of a proper building and other necessary infrastructure, a group of students put a lock on the school’s gate and launched an indefinite sit-in on Monday in front of the institute, Patel said.

“The dharna will continue till our demands are met,” he asserted.
