Budgam, June 12: For the last fifteen years, the Government Primary School in the Danger Mollah at Makhama village in central Kashmir's Budgam district has been functioning from the rented accommodation of two rooms.
The locals from the village told Rising Kashmir that the government has allotted the primary school for the village under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) programme which started functioning in the rented accommodation in the year 2004.
Abdul Salam Dar, one of the residents of Makhama village said that the government has allotted the Primary School for the upliftment of the elementary education in the village.
"The school started functioning from two rooms. Since then it still remains functioning from the same two rooms," Dar said.
He said that there are nearly 80 boys and girls students up to the 5th standard who are presently studying in the school.
Ali Muhammad, another resident said that the students in the school are not able to concentrate on their studies as the students from other classes are studying in the same room.
He said they have already requested the government to look into the matter. “But unfortunately, nothing has been done."
The locals requested the Director of School Education to construct a school building in the area where all kinds of facilities will be provided to the students.
Deputy Chief Educational Officer Budgam, Inderjeet Singh said that he will discuss the issue with Chief educational Officer Budgam.
