I do hope that you and your team will be fit & fine by the grace of Almighty Allah. I want to draw your kind attention towards inordinate delay with respect to already upgraded schools of our area. Some days ago, I came across very disturbing programme on Gulistan News channel regarding this burning issue.
Firstly, the programme aired by this particular channel was about the upgraded Government Girls High School, Daharmunah. This particular institution of our village was upgraded some five or six years ago. It is pertinent to mention here that even after six years of its upgradation, the work on new school building has not been started yet by concerned field agencies. The allocated funds for construction of the building have already been released to the concerned department. This sorry state of affairs prevailing in our education department has shaken the collective consciousness of civilized society. Common masses fail to understand the inordinate delay in construction of upgraded schools in general & in our village in particular. The district education apparatus before upgrading various schools should be taking various field agencies into confidence. There should be some protocol & regulations regarding their upgradation. There should be a time frame for completion of upgraded institutions of any area. But it seems that all rules & regulations are being buried in broad daylight by concerned field agencies. The most shocking manifestation of these developments is that the immediate authorities at helm are not taking any interest in redressing the miserable plight of school authorities. The school administration has many times approached higher authorities for early completion of the new school building. But all their efforts have not yielded anything concrete till date.

Secondly, the standard of education has got crushed due to these unfortunate developments. There are not new classrooms available for upgraded classes. The students of upgraded classes are made to sit in already overcrowded rooms or in open air. The teaching community is on toes to teach them in these extremely harsh conditions. With the result, the very essence of upgraded schools is devoid of logic & reason. I request your goodself through the medium of this newspaper to kindly intervene in this respect. There is an urgent need to direct concerned field agencies to start the work on new buildings & ensure their completion within prescribed time limits. The civil society of our village is eagerly waiting for your urgent intervention in this regard. Our whole village is very educated & fertile. Everyone from white collar worker to a labourer is ready to lend their sincere support to your interventions. At the same time, if there’s any loophole or hindrance on the part of our village, that needs to be taken care of with responsible citizens of our village.
Lastly, I do hope that your goods self will realize the gravity of the situation & pass necessary directions in this regard at an earliest.
