@CMOfficeAssam: Shift the school closer to children of Kuruwati village, Assam by 14 Nov

How would you feel if I tell you that from tomorrow you will have to cross a river without a boat to reach your school, college or office? Thankfully you won’t have to do such a thing. But young children in a small village in Assam are forced to use aluminium pots as boats to cross a river to reach their school every single day! My heart was in my mouth as I watched with horror a video of 3 boys and 3 girls -all less than 10 years of age and in government school uniforms - making their way to school located on an island in this dangerous way.These are the images that I saw in a video online when my state Assam became a hashtag and began trending on the internet.I shudder to think of how these underprivileged children are risking their life and limb every single day, while authorities look the other way. The media reports say there are from Kurwatii village in Naduwar area of Biswanath district. I even saw the interview of a school teacher who confirmed that there has been no bridge over the river, leaving the children no choice but to use makeshift boats - earlier banana plant fibre and now aluminium vessels.This is not what the Right to Education Act had in mind for India’s children!It is time for authorities - everyone from the block education officer to the Chief Minister of my state to sit up and give the children of Kuruwati village a safer passage to school. Would they be comfortable with their own children going to school in such an unsafe way?This issue is no less than an emergency. For we as a society are clearly failing our children. It is time to start caring and start acting.Sign my petition asking the Government of Assam to do the following by this 14th November, which is Children’s Day Shift the school closer to the children - from the island to the mainland where they live And in the meantime build a sturdy bridge or provide a child-safe, free boat service to ferry the children across the river to school. Sign my petition to make access to schools safer for these children and future generations. Your signature can make a huge difference in someone’s life. #SaveAssamKids(Photo credit:

@CMOfficeAssam: Shift the school closer to children of Kuruwati village, Assam by 14 Nov

At the outset let me say that I was shocked to learn from the media and TV channels that small school children were forced to go to school by crossing a river on cooking utensils endangering their precious lives on a daily basis. The school in question was the Paschim Kuwaroti LP school that falls within my Legislative Constituency of Biswanath. It need not be said that had the local community of that area or the school governing body brought this matter to my notice earlier, corrective action would have been undertaken immediately by the concerned authorities as the school has been in operation since the year 2001-2002. However, it needs to be also mentioned that for the students of Polokhoni area on the other bank of the river Gildhari, the Polokhoni LP School is around 1.5 kms away. However, since the Paschim Kuwaroti LP School is just across the river on the other bank, the students prefer this school irrespective that there is no bridge to crossover and hence always endangering their lives. As an elected representative of the people it is my utmost duty to resolve these issues of my constituents. Accordingly, I along with the district administration officials visited the area on 29th September and took stock of the situation and committed to construct a bridge over the river in line with my commitment for the same made in the Legislative Assembly on 27th September. It is with humility that I can say today that the construction of a wooden bridge of 36 meters length has commenced since yesterday, the 24th of October. In the presence of the local community members the work was started and I have given a commitment to complete the same within the next 3 months. The progress for the same will be personally monitored by me so that the bridge is completed at the earliest and the local community and students will never have to risk their lives daily just to attend school. We owe this definitely to our children. Also check this news link and the photograph attached: Thank you. Promod Borthakur MLA, Biswanath Constituency, Assam
