Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, May 2: A leading Christian missionary school located in Srinagar city is virtually playing with the health of its students as has it failed to cut the Russian poplars that are present in the school campus.
The missionary school known as Tyndale Biscoe and Mallinson School has not followed the directions of High Court as well as district administration to cut down the Russian poplars in the school premises. Failure on this part has jeopardized the health of thousands of students studying at the school.
Early Times has learnt from sources that there are at least 40 Russian poplars in the premises of the missionary school. They said the school administration has taken no step whatsoever to cut the trees that emit pollen during this time of the year.
It would be in place to mention here that last year the High Court had pulled up the district administration for its failure to deal with the pollen emitted by the Russian poplars. Following this the administration went into top gear while ordering the cutting down of Russian poplars across the length and breadth of Srinagar.
"The orders issued by the High Court and the subsequent follow up action by the administration were hailed by one and all. However, these orders failed to reach the administration of Tyndale Biscoe and Mallinson School thus affecting the health of school students," said sources.
Sources said the school administration was many times asked to cut down the poplars but no action has been taken so far. This has resulted into a situation wherein huge balls of pollen can be seen falling from the poplars present in the campus of the missionary school. "The people running their business in the vicinity of the school moved application with the school authorities many times but no action was taken. The person heading the school told the complainants that he would not cut down the poplars whatever the consequences maybe," said sources.
Sources said that the complainants besides shooting written correspondence also made verbal requests to the school administration so that some action is taken. However, the verbal requests too were not heeded by the concerned people and as such the students continue to suffer. The Tyndale Biscoe and Mallinson School is located on the Nazool land in the Lal Chowk area of Srinagar city. Despite many objections the school was not shifted out of the city centre although the same is concerned as a bottleneck in traffic engineering. Tehsildar Srinagar (South) Rabia Yusuf said that the complainants should lodge a written complaint with her office following which she would look into the matter. She said that she has not received any complaint in this regard so far.
