Panchayats and Mangshila School SMC protest dismantling of old school building

Mangan, 02 Jul:

Panchayats and public of Mangshila, North Sikkim, along with the School Managing Committee members of Mangshila Senior Secondary School took out a rally today to protest against the decision of the Engineering Cell of Human Resource Development Department to dismantle the old building of the school.

It may be mentioned here, the principal and SMC members of Mangshila SSS and the Zilla Panchayat had demanded that the construction site for the new building of the school be shifted to a different location to add to the infrastructure instead of dismantling the old school building which, they believe, is still in serviceable condition.

They wanted the new school building at a new location so that the old school building could continue to be used.

However, the Engineering Cell of HRDD has decided that the old school building be dismantled and the new construction be taken up at the same spot.

Opposing the decision, Zilla Member, Zomin Limboo, informed that they had submitted a petition regarding the matter at a coordination meeting held among Panchayats, public and the Mangshila SSS SMC.

Today’s rally was taken out from Mangshila Village Administrative Centre to Mangshila SSS.
