Update : 09 Nov 2015, 07:40 PM

The construction of Kutubkathi Govt Primary School in Jhalokathi is incomplete even after the work was started almost three years ago when the government had announced a grant of Tk6 lakh for the institution.

According to sources, the construction of the building was given to Aminul Islam Liton, local Awami League leader and also Ramchandrapur UP chairman in 2012. He completed only 40 percent work of the building. Now, the institution is lying in dilapidated condition hampering the education of the students.

Dilip Kumer Roy, teacher of the school, said Aminul was said to complete the work timely after he was given Tk6 lakh. But after completing 40 percent work he stopped the work.

Managing committee chairman Dhiren Mondoal said: “Aminul threatened  us several times after we requested him to complete the work.”

“The government did not take steps in this regard though we have urged the local administration several times,” he added.

Locals said though the government had taken plan to develop the structure of primary education, the students of the school were deprived of the opportunities due to its poor condition.

They also said the students had to suffer a lot as they were bound to attend classes in two rooms as the four others had not been completed.

Sometimes rooms of nearby high school were used for taking classes. The high school authority said it was pressure to them.

When contacted, engineer Md Arifuddoula of Local Government Engineering Department, said the construction of the school might be completed within three months if the work started.
