Telangana government school turns into dump yard, kids eat in filth

HYDERABAD: Tucked a few kilometres away from the bustling Begumpet is this government school where the students have to sit amidst filth to eat their midday meal.
The school has turned into a dumpyard for construction debris with no access to toilet and drinking water facilities.
While the school education department denies the existence of pathetic conditions at the school, over 500 children have to struggle on a daily basis.
However, the government does not seem to be responsible to cater to the basic needs of the children.
It does not even have an Asha worker to serve midday meals to the children.
Shockingly, the students are forced to sit in dusty and filthy surrounding during lunch as the school has become an open space for illegal dumping of construction debris.
Moreover, the school’s playground has been encroached upon by the locals to build a community hall.
We are trying to pay money and get the construction debris dumped in the school removed.” B Venkata Narasamma, Hyderabad District Education Officer(DEO) said, “We have not received any complaints from the school.
We will visit the school once and see what their requirements are.
Government does not provide plates to students for midday meals and students should get their own plates.”
