Landslide at Anganwadi Kendra in Hrishyamukh block; No role of administration for past 15 days


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, August 21: In a startling turn of events, the Meghram Bari Anganwadi Kendra, situated within the Manirambari ADC Village, is teetering on the brink of being swallowed by the earth due to a catastrophic hillside collapse. Shockingly, the Child Development Project Officer (CDPO) responsible for the area allegedly lacks the requisite resources to address this dire situation.

This crisis has forced Anganwadi workers to relocate their educational activities to a rented residence, further exacerbating the issue. The precarious condition of the Meghram Bari Anganwadi Kendra has left the local community deeply concerned.

The Anganwadi Kendra, which serves 27 children, suffered a catastrophic event on August 7th when torrential rains triggered the collapse of a massive mound looming behind the facility. The landslide, as a result, breached the rear wall of the Anganwadi Kendra, causing extensive damage. Shockingly, all essential educational materials and furniture inside the Kendra were buried beneath the rapidly collapsing ground.

An Anganwadi Kendra worker, promptly reported the dire situation to the CDPO. Additionally, the matter was escalated to the local panchayat for urgent attention. Regrettably, despite a full 15 days having elapsed since the incident, the administration has yet to launch any initiatives to extricate the buried materials or furniture from the beleaguered Meghram Bari Anganwadi Kendra.

In a remarkable display of dedication to the community, Mathu Priya Tripura, the Anganwadi Kendra’s worker-in-charge, has resorted to utilizing their personal finances to secure a rented house for educational purposes, ensuring that the children’s studies continue uninterrupted.

Local residents are now demanding swift and effective action from the authorities to safeguard the Anganwadi Kendra, as well as the essential educational resources entombed within it. This situation has cast a spotlight on the dire need for immediate intervention to rescue the Anganwadi Kendra and protect the educational futures of the 27 children it serves.
