The border residents of Pargwal have been demanding upgradation of Girls Middle School to the level of High School since long but nothing has been done even though the Government recently upgraded 184 schools including 75 Middle Schools.
Senior Congress leader Ram Saroop Sharma condemned the discriminatory attitude of present State Government towards the people of border belt and urged the authorities to initiate measures to redress the long pending demand of upgradation. He said the people will come on the road if the Government failed to redress the demand.
Vijay Kumar, Ex-Panch said, “We have been ignored by the Government on all the fronts. In the entire border belt there are only two High Schools at Jamana Bela and Gurah Manhasan. This school was established in 1976 but even after passage of over 41 years the Government did not upgrade this school.”
Daljit Singh, a political leader held present Government and their elected representatives from the constituency responsible for their plight. He demanded for redressal of the same at an earliest.
“We were being neglected by the Government. Every time we were assured of providing High School but we remained neglected”, said Daya Ram, Darshan Lal and Ram Lal, all parents of the girl students.
They demanded upgradation of the said school viz High School Gurah Manhasan to the level of Higher Secondary.
