In absence of footbridge, students put lives at risk to reach school

Early Times Report
kathua, Sept 6: In the absence of a bridge, the public in general and the students in particular of Bikher panchyat block Bhoond in district Kathua are forced to cross a mighty nallah by putting their lives at grave risk to reach their respective destinations.
This is really a dark side of the system but true that thousands of residents from two panchayats of tehsil Basohli overcome death everyday for the sake of earning livelihood as they cross over a nallah in absence of a foot bridge that too when every politician claims all round development.
People of Bikher panchyat demanded foot bridge on nallah but unconcerned public representatives as well as the administration paid no heed without even giving it a thought that a mishap could happen anytime.
The villagers as well as students are forced to cross the deadly nallah every day as they are left with no alternative while proceeding for earning of livelihood and continuing their studies.
"As hundreds of students of our school are forced to cross nallah with heavy bags and shoes on their heads, their mothers are worried and keep praying till they return back home," a student of Government High School Bikher informed adding that students including girls do this exercise twice a day as ours is the only high school in the nearby area and is located on the other side of the nallah."'
"It is a daily routine for us to cross the nallah and go to our schools. However, it becomes extremely difficult for us to do the same when there is a heavy rainfall. It is affecting our studies," said another student.
We feel helpless but cannot do anything till a foot bridge is constructed near nallah, said Naib Sarpanch Bikher Panchayat, Joginder Singh.
The locals, too, demand the government to build a bridge so that the children from economically weaker sections, for whom government schools are the last option, can go to schools regularly.
