Valpoi : National Students’ Union of India, Goa celebrated Independence Day of India by distributing free stationery to school going students in the remote village Satre in Sattari Taluka.
Present for the function were NSUI Goa President, Naushad Chowdhari, Valpoi Block President Dashrath Mandrekar, and other NSUI leaders.
Speaking on the occasion Naushad said, “It is saddening to see that on one hand CM Pramod Sawant proudly says that Goa is no. 1 in terms of educational infrastructure while on th eother hand he cant even provide basic connectivity facilities to students like mobile network”
“The students of Satre village have to go to Nagargao to attend their online classes which is 15 Kms away,” Lamented Naushad.
He suggested that even if one hotspot is created in the Temple situated at Satre all the students can come together to study and attend their online classes.
“CM who says he is proud of being an education minister should look at the plight of these students and remedy the situation because students are not at all proud of him” said Naushad.
