GMS Darra lacks toilet: Over 200 students go to nearby nallah for relieving themselves

Belying the tall claims of the government of making every area ‘Open Defecation Free’, the situation for the students of Goverment Middle School Darra in Thannamandi zone is worrisome as the school lacks a proper toilet.

The students of the school, over 200 in number, have to go to a nearby nallah for relieving themselves. “We are in a large number, but there is not a single toilet in our school,” the students claimed.

Headmaster of the school Abdul Hamid told Greater Kashmir that an NGO constructed a toilet for the students, but it cannot be used. "Only a structure was fixed. It does not have a soakage pit and that is why it remains unused,” he said.

While talking to Greater Kashmir, the students demanded a proper toilet facility in their school. “We want a proper toilet with water supply. It is the need of the hour for us,” they demanded.
