One teacher said it will not be possible to teach them on the open grounds always. “It rains and sometimes there are hailstorms too, and winter is just round the corner. It seems we have to close down studies for an indefinite period if construction of building is not given attention in time”, he said.
Teacher of Gufapokhari Primary School, Hima Khanal said this is because of negligence and commission game while construction of the building, and the students have to bear the brunt.
