Maha minister promises buildings for "pathetic" Ashram schools
Gadchiroli (Maha): Lamenting that most of the Ashram schools in the state were in a dire state, Maharashtra Minister of State for Tribal Development Rajendra Gavit today promised that in the next three years every single Ashram school would get a new building.
He was speaking at the first anniversary programme of the Gondwana University here this afternoon.
"Though I am a minister of this department, I am not happy with the condition of the Ashram schools. There are as many as 574 Ashram schools and 471 hostels run by the Tribal Development Department in the state. However, the condition of these schools and hostels is very pathetic and needs to be improved," the minister said.
"I have studied in a tribal school myself. We are aware of the problems of tribal students. Therefore, we have now decided to constuct new buildings for Ashram schools. We need to ensure that every single Ashram school in the state gets a building. This work will be over within the coming two three years," Gavit said.
"If the schools look pleasant, then students will be able to study properly. The government has decided to create education hubs for tribal students, where they will get primary to post-graduate level education under one roof," he said.
