MP Ramen Deka lays foundation stone for school
Member of Parliament (MP) from Mangaldoi, Ramen Deka, on November 26 laid the foundation stone for building six classroom blocks in order to provide quality education for the needy and underprivileged children in Natun Fatasil High School (NFHS)—a provincialised school under the state government.
This project has been undertaken by the Round Table India—Guwahati Chapter Table 240, as part of their continuous efforts for development of society.
A Bhoomi pujan was performed during the occasion which was graced by several dignitaries. Some of them included director of Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC), Babulal Sarma, Secretary AHSEC Kamal Jyoti Gogoi, ACS Krishna Baruah, Area Chairman Round Table India (RTI), Area 14, Vikram Singhania, Area Secretary Treasurer RTI Area 14 Ravi Jain, Chairman Round Table 240 Kishan Agrawal and Principal NFHS Purabi Das Kalita.
According to officials, the estimated cost of building the classroom block with furniture will be Rs 50 lakhs. The amount is being raised through Round Table Trust and volunteering donors.
According to project chairman Shubham Saraogi, this initiative will help in educating around 300 who are currently being deprived of higher education due to lack of classrooms in the existing school set up.
Round Table 240 has undertaken other social initiatives like toilet block formation in Maligaon High School, child abuse awareness camps, blood donation camps, cataract and diabetic check up and Swachh Bharat initiatives among others.
