AGARTALA, March 25 (TIWN): The Dharmanagar SB School located in Dharmanagar in North Tripura is not running well due to the negligence of school authority and Inspector of Schools Sujit Rudra Pal during the last couple of months.

According to sources, there are no arrangements of drinking water facilities in the school and students are being of receiving good quality of midday meal. There is no boundary wall of the SB school, while it is situated only two meters away from the Dharmanagar main road.

Due to the use of poor quality of midday meal the students of the school frequently become the victim of sickness and various other diseases, said the attending doctors who provide necessary treatment to the students.

 It is to be mentioned here that most of the students of anganwadi centers of the state are not getting food items which are distributed under the Integrated Child Development Schemes (ICDS). Students of the anganwadi centers are not getting their mid-day meal even though official records claim that mid-day meals are being provided to the students on a regular basis.

“We are not getting food items on a regular basis,” the children complained. When asked if they were getting milk through the scheme, the children were surprised they were supposed to get milk under the scheme. “We don’t know that we are supposed to get milk under the scheme,” the children said.

It may be mentioned that cooked food items which are supposed to be distributed under the ICDS include vegetable pulao, vegetable khichri, namkeen dalia, sweet dalia, sweet rice and weaning food (milk supplements etc.) for children in the age group of seven months to one year.
