Grass grows on cycles

Weeds have covered around 2,000 bicycles of the "Sabuj Sathi" scheme of the Bengal government as the two-wheelers are being kept at the ground of Maharaja Jagadishnath High School in Raiganj for the past eight months. Sujit Pal, the headmaster of the school, said on Monday that the block administration of Raiganj had kept the cycles on their ground and also in some of the rooms.

Weeds have covered around 2,000 bicycles of the "Sabuj Sathi" scheme of the Bengal government as the two-wheelers are being kept at the ground of Maharaja Jagadishnath High School in Raiganj for the past eight months. Sujit Pal, the headmaster of the school, said on Monday that the block administration of Raiganj had kept the cycles on their ground and also in some of the rooms."Weeds and grasses have covered the cycles. We cannot use our school ground for conducting sports and games for students and don't know when these cycles would be removed," said Pal.The school has written to the block administration several times but no initiative has been taken so far. "Sabuj Sathi" is considered as one of the dream projects of chief minister Mamata Banerjee.Ayesha Rani A, the district magistrate of North Dinajpur, said an inquiry had been ordered. "We have sought a report from the officials as to why so many cycles were kept in open. We will also speak with the agency concerned that supplies the cycles so that necessary repairs can be done as they have not yet formally handed over these cycles to us. Also, our officials will see that the cycles are distributed among students in next two week," said the DM. Report and picture by Kousik Sen
