Gadchiroli July 19 (District Correspondent) One more officer of the Gadchiroli Zilla Parishad administration travelled by a boat braving rains to visit the primary school in remote villages in Mulchera taluka recently and set an example of ‘duty first’.
Mr. Gautam Meshram, A Block Education Officer (BEO) of Mulchera wanted to visit the schools under his Panchayat Samiti to inspect the activities there but there was an obstacle of the backwater of Kannamwar Dam spreading on the way. Travelling by boat to cross this water was the only option left before him to reach the villages.
Mr. Meshram, however, gathered courage and along with his other colleagues, finally set on the travel and boarded the small boat even though it was raining. The officers thus reached Wengnur, Adangepalli, Surgaon villages through this boat and visited the schools.
‘I took this inspiration from the CEO of Zilla Parishad Kumar Ashirwad who always visits the remote places on foot and inspects the developmental activities and decided to visit the schools’, told Mr. Meshram to the press reporters before visiting the villages.
It is true that the teachers working in these remote places have to face many difficulties but they have to fulfil their duties to reach the education to the students in remote places, Meshram added. My visit was not just aimed to inspect the villages, but to boost up the morale of the teachers working on the ground besides all odds, he added. I have just fulfilled my duty by visiting the schools, the officer told.
There are many villages in the district which are still not reachable in lack of bridges and roads. During the rainy seasons, people of these villages have to face many problems. Many villages in Mulchera taluka also become inaccessible during the rainy season because of the backwater of Kannamwar Dam and people in these villages have to travel by boat. However, the life has been going on in the same situation for the last many years.
The initiative of Mr. Meshram is being appreciated in the area.
