One such school is Govern- ment High School, Lidran. Students and teaching staff are sitting inside classrooms with portions of ceiling having caved in and plaster on walls peeling off. Instead of being surrounded by greenery or a playground, the sewage-laced sludgy ground not only just reflect a poor picture of the school but has also badly affected its building. While showing the walls of the classrooms and the school, principal of the school Davinder Kaur said: “It’s only last year that she had whitewashed the whole school. However, being surrounded in sewage water, the school looks as if it has not been maintained since decades. While seepage was a common problem during monsoons, the classrooms, library, labs, and the staffrooms remain dampened for the whole year. Besides, sewage-mixed water enters the school after every downpour when the level of the sewage pond surrounding the school building increases. “Ceilings leak constantly when it rains. We also face power cuts. Sometimes, flies, insects and worms enter the classroom,” said a Class IX student. Ironically, in the smart classroom also, the students are made to sit on torn mats. continued on page 2 Aashray tops NTSE in dist, bags 7th rank in state Former mayor Suresh Sehgal in Jalandhar.

The owner of the house, Sulakshan Sharma, also joined in and roughed him up, claiming that Joshi asked Rs 10,000 as bribe, a charge that was denied by MC officials. Series of events On October 29, 2018, after the incident took place, the video of Sehgal in which the whole scene was captured went viral. From November 1, MC officials went on a strike for several days seeking his arrest. On November 15, Sehgal, who had filed an anticipa- tory bail application, got interim relief from the Punjab and Haryana High Court in the case. After getting relief, Sehgal was given a grand welcome to the city and he had then said that he had always fought against corruption and would continue to do so. On December 17, 2018, the bail plea of former Sehgal was rejected by the Punjab and Haryana High Court. Sehgal had represented the BJP when he was the Mayor from 1997-2002, before moving to the Congress and then to the SAD. c m y b 10 students from district clear exam AUM SECOND IN DIST Aashray Gupta celebrates with his family.
