government-run school in Shabqadar area over run

CHARSADDA The future of hundreds of students has been put at stake as the landowner of a government-run school in Shabqadar area on Thursday closed the institution over differences with the education department on appointment of a watchman.

Mohammad Amin had donated a portion of his land to the education department for construction of a primary school some 13 years ago in Kabli area of Shabqadar on some terms and conditions. Presently over two hundred children, including girls, were studying in the only school of the area.

The landowner was watchman at the school for 13 years. But after retirementneither he was given pension nor the post of watchman was transferred to one of his children. The education department appointed another man on the post. So the owner in protest locked the doors of the school building and shifted hisfamily in the building.

It is important to mention here that several girls and boys schools are still closed in Shabqadar area due to tussle between officials and landowners. The ultimate sufferers are the students.

The landowner Mohammad Amin told Dawn the education department was not abiding by the agreement made with him. He said neither he was givenpension nor his children were recruited on the post after his retirement. He said instead of giving them their right the authorities appointed a third person by ‘taking bribe’ from him.

The worried parents have demanded of the Chief Minister Ameer Haider Khan Hoti to intervene and save the future of their children.

BOYCOTT: Primary schoolteachers on Thursday boycotted classes to press the government for acceptance of their demands. Call or the boycott was given by the All Primary Teachers Association (APTA).

APTA district president Arshad Khan, Charsadda tehsil president Faizullah and general secretary Zahidullah, demanded of the government to accept their demands forthwith else they would organise protests.

At a meeting the teachers appealed to other teachers organisations to cooperate with them in their struggle for their genuine demands.

STUDENTS INJURED: Students blocked the Charsadda-Takht Bhai road after four of their colleagues were injured in police fire. The police had to intervene to lift the blockade of the road by a group of students who were angered by a decision of umpire in a cricket match at Bahlola school.

The enraged students pelted stones on police, which resorted to baton-charge and fired in the air to disperse the students. As a result four students were injured.Dawn.
