Dispur College paints a sorry picture of poor infrastructure
GUWAHATI: Dispur College, which is located at the heart of the city, is plagued by several problems for the students in terms of infrastructural facilities.
The construction of a new building within the college campus is adding to students’ woes as the debris lies scattered in the college campus which is located at Ganeshguri. The students have complained that the construction of the new building has been ongoing since last year and its construction has remained stalled for a long time now.
They added that the construction materials like iron rods, pieces of wood, and other construction items lie strewn around the campus, much to the annoyance of the students.
Further, the students say that the toilets in the college are in a bad shape with strong stench emanating from the washrooms.
“The condition of the toilets is the worst. They sometimes lack water supply and the flushes remain broken too,” informed Hrishikesh Aditya, a student of Dispur College. He added that the students have even complained to the authorities regarding the poor toilet conditions, but to no avail.
Additionally, a few students also complained of water supply being an issue which especially poses a challenge during the summer months.
Another student, who passed out from the college a year ago, told G Plus that the girls’ common room is in a pathetic state.
“The girls’ common room lies in a sorry state and it is located right next to a toilet so it gets really smelly. The authorities should take some concrete initiatives to better the overall infrastructural problems of the college,” she informed.
The commerce department building of the college remains another area of concern for the students. It is constructed on the other side of the college premises and the students need to climb several flights of stairs to reach the commerce building.
In between, due to the ongoing construction the debris from the construction again lies strewn on the sides of the stairs.
On the other hand, the lack of hostel facility for students also creates a problem for outstation students, informed sources.
