The Telangana High Court issued a notice to officials after series of protests by students complaining that a Government Junior College with 700 students has just one toilet, also seeks response in the matter.
The matter pertains to the Saroornagar Government Junior College, where the students have alleged that there is only one toilet in the whole college having around 700 students. The students of the college have been staging protests against the management demanding redressal of their problems.
The students demanded that Telangana Education Minister Sabitha Indra Reddy and the State Education Commissioner should come and solve the problem.
Incidentally, a law student had also written a letter to the Chief Justice of Telangana High Court, Ujjal Bhuyan. Finally, on Thursday, the Telangana HC issued notices to the Chief Secretary and Principal Secretary of Education to respond to this matter.
After the incident came to light, a BJP leader, Ramulu Yadav came forward to donate Rs 20 lakh to Government Junior College Principal for the construction of toilets and providing facilities. The Corporator of Saroornagar, Akula Srivani said that there is only one toilet in the college and that too lacks a water connection.
“Today, in the Telangana government, an unfortunate situation has occurred where work is being done only after students come out and stage protests. There are 400 boys and 400 girls studying at Saroornagar Junior College but there is only 1 toilet for all of them. Moreover, there is no water connection to it.
