SIRSI: Grants for schools for physically challenged children should be utilised properly. Fifty per cent of the grants sanctioned are not being utilised. Full-time officials are needed to deal with the problems of such schools, Western Ghats Task Force Chairman Anant Asisar has said.
He was speaking after inaugurating the Annual Day celebrations of Mahadev Bhat Koorse School for Deaf and Dumb children in Sirsi, organised under the auspices of the Uttara Kannada District Disabled Welfare Association on Monday.
Institutions and voluntary organisations that worked for this cause should take up the problems faced by such schools with the authorities concerned, he said.
Muktamath of Forestry College here said that the school was functioning well but it needed facilities.
Association president K.V. Bhat, who presided over the function, said that the association was planning to start job-oriented course for the benefit of the physically challenged children.
Association secretary M.G. Hegde, T. Narayan Bhat, N.B. Ankolekar, and Veena Bhat were present. Headmistress Jayalaxmi Naik welcomed the gathering. Rajagopal Iyyar proposed a vote of thanks.
