Gadag: Mandatory for students of this school to bring buckets everyday

Daijiworld Media Network - Gadag (SP)

Gadag, Jun 27: It is well known that students have to carry books, notebooks, pen, pencil etc when attending their classes. However there is a school which has made it compulsory for its students to also bring a bucket when coming to school. 

This is Morarji Desai residential school located at Kalakaleshwara village in Gajendragad taluk of this district. Here, the students are more worried about water than their lessons. They spent more time waiting for water than reading and writing. Even though these children are facing difficult times, the social welfare department has turned a blind eye to their problems. 

The children of this school have read in newspapers that when the chief minister goes on village stay, the schools where his stay is arranged are provided in advance with basic facilities. But the residential school referred above has no water as all the three bore wells of the school have gone dry. Even after a month since the school reopened, no official has come forward to solve water problem. Everyday water tanker is brought to the school. The children have to collect this water in their buckets and then attend the classes, a student of the school, Manjunath, confessed. 

As of now, 239 students are studying in this residential school. Over ten staff members too function here. But they do not have any basic amenities, which is agonizing, said another student, Aishwarya. 

The government spends crores of rupees for the education of poor children. It also adds new residential schools each year by releasing grant. Either because of the apathy of the officials or their greed, this grant does not appear to be spent judiciously. Therefore, the children do not get proper facilities. One hopes that this problem will end soon.

    To produce tissue paper also water required. rather than distributing bhagya schemes to fake NRI minority families chor govt should look at how to spend that money at the right place for right peoples.

    It is unbelievable but true that these students have to go through this situation due to dry borewells. The administration should have taken care of this problem before all the wells went dry. This has been happening since many years. It is a shame that these students have to carry buckets to school instead of concentrating on their studies.

    What the officials will come and do? There are facilities like bore well but by naturally it is gone dry. WE can not blame officials for each and everything. Need long term solutions.

    The solution is already here..Rain water harvest and borewell recharge units to every existing borewells.

    Water treatment facilities for every lake and river that could generate even employment.

    We have miserably failed in addressing our water problem.

    Water shortage is like a epidemic disease to the society.

    Govt and the people should join together and find a permanent solution to this problem. Solution should be area based as there cannot be
    universal solution.

    Water is first priority, Health is second priority and rest like housing, road etc should follow them.

    As we have get rid of some of the dangerous diseases we have to get rid of this problem.

    Manoo, Hiriyadka, you have gone blind and blaming Congress for anything and everything! Are you reading news??? Germany and many European countries are gripped with heat wave and deaths! That too is Congress problem?? According to you global warming is Congress problem! All the problems of India are due to Nehru! Your party is for enjoying power in the name of religion and create communal tension!! Out of 70 years your people too were in power for 3 terms! Why their performance was so poor!!
    Who allowed population growth and thus the needs of more housing and concrete jungle?? Be sensible while blaming! For your headache or sneeze you just blame Congress! You are blind towards India's growth since 1947.
