Seerat Naaz, a Class 3 student studying at the Government High School in Lohai, Jammu and Kashmir, shared a video on social media showing the poor condition of her school’s infrastructure.
She appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to address the issue, and the Prime Minister’s Office responded, promising action. As a result, the Union Territory’s Education Department has taken action to improve the school’s infrastructure.
“Assalamu Alaikum Modiji. Kaise ho aap…aap sab ki baat suntey ho, meri bhi baat suno (Hello, Modiji. How are you? You listen to everyone, please listen to me also),” Naaz said in her four-minute video that went viral.
Recently, a video message from a Class 3 student named Seerat Naaz from Kathua district went viral on social media. In the video, Naaz requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to improve the facilities at her dilapidated school building.
She highlighted issues such as dirty floors, bad toilets, and unfinished construction work. She can be heard in video saying that she along with her clasmates are asked to sit down on dirty flooring full of dust for studies. Her appeal caught the attention of the Jammu and Kashmir administration, and the Director of School Education, Jammu, Ravi Shankar Sharma visited the school. He revealed that a project worth Rs 91 lakh was sanctioned to upgrade the school but was held up due to administrative approval issues. The government has prepared a detailed project to ensure proper facilities at all remote schools in the Union Territory.
