Congress forms fact-finding committee for Bijapur’s Gangalur Pota Cabin case

\Three female legislators included in 6-member committee
In a startling revelation from the Maoist sensitive area of Gangalur Pota Cabin in Bijapur, a grave incident has come to light. A 20-year-old twelfth-grade student studying in the makeshift school gave birth to a child without the awareness of hostel staff regarding her pregnancy. This incident has sparked outrage and concern among the locals and authorities alike.
Upon discovery of the incident, the opposition Congress has taken decisive action by forming a 6-member fact-finding team to delve into the matter and uncover the truth behind this shocking occurrence. Terming it a serious unethical incident, Congress aims to address the underlying issues and ensure justice for those involved.
The investigative team comprises three legislators, all of whom are female members. Notable members include Balod legislator Smt. Sangita Sinha, Sihawa legislator Ambika Markam, and Bhanupratappur legislator Savitri Mandavi. Alongside them are other prominent figures from Congress, including district presidents and panchayat members.
In response to the incident, the district administration has taken action by suspending the hostel superintendent. This move underscores the gravity of the situation and the need for accountability within the educational system.
Reports of irregularities within Pota Cabin have long been a cause for concern, with complaints ranging from discrepancies in student records to overall mismanagement. Sources indicate that despite regulations mandating monthly medical examinations for students and regular monitoring by officials, these protocols have not been diligently followed. Had proper procedures been in place, the situation involving the twelfth-grade student could have been addressed sooner.
Moreover, suspicions have been raised regarding the accuracy of student figures, with allegations suggesting the manipulation of data to benefit from allocated funds for food supplies and other necessities within Pota Cabin. Such malpractices further underscore the urgent need for thorough investigations and reforms within the educational infrastructure of Maoist affected regions.
As the investigation progresses, stakeholders are hopeful that the truth will emerge, leading to necessary reforms to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future. The welfare and safety of students must remain paramount, especially in vulnerable areas where educational access is already limited.
