THE NEW ACADEMIC YEAR COULD BRING NEW QUALITY UNIFORMS AND SHOES FOR MUNICPAL STUDENTS AS PROMISED BY CHAIRMAN RAM VICHARE

nmmc-edu-comm-5Every year the NMMC Education Dept. faces flak for distributing uniforms and shoes at the end of the academic term or not providing them at all. The reason for delay poses a very shameful and embarrassing situation for the education committee. But this year, the dept. has geared up to ensure that students get their uniforms and shoes latest by July end as promised by Ram Vichare in an interview with our Editor Zeba Warsia. Navi Mumbai News in recent reports has been highlighting the alleged corruption in the education committee of the municipal corporation that ultimately affects the municipal students. Our reports highlight factors like the deteriorating condition of the municipal schools, no benches for students, many not even having blackboards to write on, schools do not have doors and windows, compound walls are not proper, many do have lights, fans and many schools do not have drinking water, which indeed is a grave and major problem for young students, especially during the summers. The worst perhaps of all these is that despite having the resources, solutions are not being sought extent. And perhaps the most unfortunate part is that the richest corporation is providing education where students wear torn school uniforms and battered shoes. We met Education Committee Chairman Ram Vichare on this subject. Promising that there will be no delay, he said that on the contrary branded uniforms and shoes for the first time will be distributed all municipal school students by July end. We also delved on the long neglected condition of Manisha Vidyalaya. Point out to Ram Vichare that he is a prominent builder and twice the education committee chairman, and yet he has failed to commence repair work at Manisha Vidyalaya. When quested the delay was to facilitate some other plans that the ruling party has for this prime property, he refuted the allegations.
