Negligence and poor infrastructure take yet another young life.
On 19th December morning, 13-year-old Joshna, a student of Murarji residential school of Mulabhagilu town, Kolar district ( Karnataka) breathed her last, succumbing to the severe injuries in a wall collapse of the School's washroom.
SFI condemns the brutal negligence of the district and taluk officials over the pathetic infrastructure of Murarji residential school, that has now murdered a young life.
SFI demands to take strict actions against the warden, district social welfare officer and taluk welfare officer who are responsible for this tragedy and demands a compensation of 10 lakhs to be given to the victim's family. If demands are not met within ten days, SFI warns to go for the gherao of District social welfare office.
SFI has started a movement for prohibiting the use of poorly maintained buildings of educational institutions in the town. The authorities should investigate the infrastructural conditions of educational institutions and should conduct an immediate maintenance work for old infrastructures in Kolar. SFI demands the construction of new hostel buildings and toilets in all schools and colleges.
Let no more life be compromised due to mismanagement and arrogance of authorities. And we assert that it is the responsibility of the Government to allocate more funds for building and maintaining the infrastructure of educational institutions.
