Demanding her right to education, a 13-year-old girl in UP has written a letter to UP CM Adityanath. Bhavana, a student of class eight, is unable to attend her school for several days as the pathway to her school is blocked due to water logging in the area.

Emphasizing the urgency of the situation she wrote in her letter that even if it takes a helicopter to be arranged or a steamer, the government should react to the grave situation as early as possible.

Bhavana is a native of Marhala village, Uttar Pradesh which is about three kilometres away from Hasanpur district where she, along with her friends, goes to study. Marhala village does not have a Higher Primary School. The town only has a school till class five, and that is why most of the children like Bhavana travel daily to the nearest village to get to the school.

In the letter, Bhavana also mentioned that the route to her school is submerged in water and in some places the farmers have even converted the Kuchha mud pathway (road) to a farming land.

Reminding the government about their own Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao scheme, Bhavana says that there are dozens of girls in her village who are unable to go to school because of the lack of infrastructure in the state.

Bhavana is hopeful that Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will consider her request at the earliest. It is indeed saddening to see that the children’s desire to learn and grow is being stifled by a lack of such basic infrastructure. There are many more students like Bhavana in our country who face similar issues.


Another Letter to the CM

In May 2018, a student of class XII had also written to chief minister Yogi Adityanath over alleged continuous harassment by Akshay Khokhar, son of Baghpat BJP president Sanjay Khokhar, and his friends, which, she wrote, had forced her to drop out her school in fear.

After the Incident came to light, an FIR was registered against three youths at Chhaprauli police station in Baghpat, Uttar Pradesh.

Meanwhile, Politician Sanjay Khokhar has rubbished the allegations against his son saying that his son is being framed in fake cases.
