Jamshedpur, July 20: State HRD minister Neera Yadav who is also in-charge of East Singhbhum district today directed East Singhbhum deputy commissioner Amit Kumar to issue show cause to district superintendent of education, Banke Bihari Singh and district education officer Raj Kumar Singh for providing incomplete figures on toilet construction.
Yadav took strong exception to district education officials for submitting incorrect figures on construction of toilet facilities in schools across district during the district planning committee meeting held this evening at the district collectorate.
“I have asked officials to verify if the projects, be it is small or major, are completed at the grass root level before submitting official report. There were several complaints from zilla parishads (district council members) and even from MLAs representatives about several schools which are yet to have fully functional toilets.
But the authorities have stated in their report that toilets construction has been completed in the district,” said Neera Yadav.
The minister asked the DSE to submit a report within three working days about the number of schools where two toilets (one each for boy and girls) are yet to be completed as per government directive.
