Guru Nanak Middle School, a government school in Gaya, Bihar, has no toilet in its premises.
This condition has caused great discomfort to both teachers and students. The students, over six hundred in number, are forced to go to their homes or to the homes of their friends to ease themselves.
“Our homes are far, so we use toilets in our friends’ homes, who live close to the school,” said Anjali Kumari, an 8th standard student.
The Municipal Corporation has been informed about the issue. The officials have assured the school that they will construct the toilets soon.
“The school comes under the management of the Gaya Nagar Nigam. I have submitted an application and visited the office in person as well. They gave an assurance, but no work has begun as yet,” Principal, Brijmohan Thakur, said.
However, Gaya Mayor, Virendra Kumar, said that he did not know anything about the issue.
“I have received no application from the school regarding lack of toilets. It is the first time that I am getting to know of the problem through you,” he told ANI, adding he will direct the Gaya Nagar Nigam to take immediate remedial action.
