A government primary school in Mirzapur village in Eastern Uttar Pradesh became a dance party venue on 7 August, the night of Rakshabandhan when relatives of the local village head apparently decided to celebrate a birthday party in the school premises, according to Hindustan Times.

The school at Tetraihiya Kala Khurd in Jamalpur was closed on Monday on account of the festival of Rakhshabandhan. When the teachers came to the school the next day, they found the campus littered and dirty.

The locals told them that it was the result of a party organised by the village head, Ramkesh Yadav’s family.

The video shows women dancing on a makeshift stage and men showering them with money, Basic Shiksha Adhikari Praveen Kumar Tiwari was informed by assistant teacher Ashok Kumar. He directed a block education officer (BEO) to carry out a probe in the matter, saying that it is a serious and highly objectionable move.

Tiwari said that the report with a request for action against the village head would be submitted to the district magistrate and the chief development officer.

Ramkesh Yadav, the village head, accepted that a party was organised but denied attending claiming that he had gone to a relative’s place in a nearby village.

On being questioned, the school principal stated that the village head had asked for the keys to the school after the school hours, but he did not tell him about the party. It was only the next day when the teachers came and saw the dirt around that they became aware of the part.


The Logical Indian community staunchly condemns the entire episode. It is pathetic to see how the village head and his family have shown a complete lack of responsibility and have made use of the precincts of an educational institution for staging something that is against the ethos of the place. We urge the concerned authorities to look into the matter and take proper steps to ensure punishment for those who breached the law.
