Girls school in Charsadda lacks basic facilities
January 10, 2017

CHARSADDA, 10 January: Despite tall claims of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa about imposing education emergency, many schools are still deprived of basic facilities.

The Government Primary School for Girls in Rajar area of Charsadda is one such school which, like other 18 schools in Charsadda, lacks boundary wall and functions in a private building. There is no electricity in the school for the last one and half year. The District Education Department said the power connection of the school was disconnected after it failed to pay Rs35,000 dues in head of power bills.

The washrooms of the school remain closed due to lack of electricity and students go to their houses to use washroom and drink water.

“There is no drinking water and washrooms are also closed due to which we are facing many problems. Lack of electricity in the school is very troublesome in summer,” the school students told TNN.

Education Department officer Nadia told TNN that the power bill of the school has been paid few days ago. She said the building owner is creating some issues in restoration of the power supply. She hoped that the issue would be resolved soon.
