IMPHAL, May 13: Despite the claim that the infrastructure of educational institutions in the State has improved, a heart wrenching video footage of several small kids studying at the submerged Mandebu Primary Upper Primary School in Tousem sub-division of Tamenglong district. The video footage has gone viral on social media today.
The viral video was uploaded and shared on multiple Facebook pages as a glaring example of the pathetic school infrastructure in remote areas of the State as the school premises were shown being submerged underwater.
The footage received several comments with one questioning, “how can anyone receive quality education under these circumstances?” while another comment stated “we have tribal students' union who blocked highways for various reasons which are not their concern. Block the highway for this, we would support you”.
