Girl students walk 12 km to meet collector in Nabarangpur over school issue
Nabarangpur: As many as 51 girls of Dhatarasiuni Girl’s High School in Nabarangpur district embarked upon a journey of 12 km braving rains today morning to meet the district collector to present their grievances.
The girls took the decision after the district administration allegedly did not pay heed to their demands on various issues in the school.
According to reports, the students have been facing inconvenience in their studies due to non-availability of science and geography teachers in the school. They had earlier raised the issue several times but in vain.
In a bid to have quick solution to their problems, the students today walked about 12 km to reach the Nabarangpur Collectorate to meet the collector and present their demands.
However, they failed to meet the collector. They returned after District Welfare Officer (DWO) Pabitra Mohan Pradhan assured them to take immediate action to fulfill their demands.
