Municipal school shut since Sept, fate of over 500 students uncertain

Though the authorities claimed that the work will start soon, the actual situation states otherwise. "The plan has been prepared. It has to be approved by the municipal corporation's Road and Buildings Committee. This will be followed by tenders. We have made arrangements for the students but such issues are tend to happen," said the chairman of municipal school board Jagdish Bhavsar.

The fact is that when the authorities were already aware about the bad condition of the old building, no timely action was taken. Hardly any action as taken until the building was accorded the status of extremely dangerous and to be vacated immediately by the inspection team.
