Sheohar district, Tariyani block. In the Maoist affected Tariyani block of the district, Salempur village’s middle school has faced one problem after another. At first, the courtyard would get filled with water. Once this issue was dealt with, it is now the main classroom and verandah that is getting filled with water.
The school’s principal Ganesh Jha and the Assistant Teachers Asghar Ali and Naageshwar said that there have been such problems in the school for a long time. They have managed to get the village head to bring in a contractor to fix these problems because it has become increasingly difficult to hold classes with the school building in such bad shape.
The contractor Satyendra Kumar said that there were delays in repair work because the village head has not released funds. A budget just shy of 3 lakhs was passed for the project but only 11 thousand rupees were paid to him. As a result he has done only a small part of the job and would work further only when payment is made.
