Ferozepur Govt Polytechnic College sans basic amenities. Government Polytechnic College of the Ferozepur district is in dire straits because of the ignorance of the administration. It is a great tragedy of our Nation that the elected governments take no time to announce the new institutes, but they surely take aeons to complete the respective projects and never keep a check on their maintenance. Such ignorance converts these buildings into shambles. This state of unconsciousness becomes more devilish when comes to border districts like Ferozepur, Moga, Muktsar, Faridkot and Fazilka. Becomes more vicious for Faridkot as it neither has any leading educational institute, nor have remarkable health services available in the district.If there is any institute available, it is in such a miserable condition that no basic amenity is available for the students. The Government Polytechnic College is an example of great negligence of the government where the girls don’t feel themselves secure and safe as they have been asked to rest and stay in such rest rooms where the window panes are broken, the toilets are with outdoors and even the drinking water is not properly available in the institute. And how the girls themselves will feel safe in the college, when their strength is extremely modicum; as per the factual figures there are only twenty odd girl students in total 12 classes out of 720, which is the total strength of the college.Besides, because of the lack other basic amenities like drinking water, pantry/canteen, and sanitised and healthy toilets (without doors, broken urinals), there has been a spontaneous decline in the strength of the boy students as To cite without beating around the bush, unfortunately now the building seems like a skeleton and the bones are vitiating day by day, produces a pungent smell. Libraries and the auditorum have become scrap store. Boys hostel have been closed due to its pitiable condition, and has been shifted to the Girls hostel, and the girls have been shifted to the PGs. Here the Beti Padhao mission and the Swachta Abhiyaan has been totally ignored because of the lack of interest.Except the principal’s quarter, most of the other 80 percent quarters are deplorable to live in. Some other parts of the building needs minor repair and maintenance as soon as possible, otherwise they too will perish soon. There is also a great shortage of the regular staff as there are only 50 per cent regular employees available, so the management has to arrange the staff on contractual base, but they had not been regularised since long. Vice Principal Dr Balkar Singh says, “the college has sufficient funds, but as the principal is entitled to spend less than 5,000 on maintenance, no major repairs and maintenance can be done”.
