Madikeri: The students of Junior College campus at Madikeri are forced to occupy the old classrooms as the new ones remain occuiped with the relief supplies.

Though it’s been three months since incessant rains flooded Kodagu heaps of relief supplies sent to the district are lying unused even at the Junior College campus at Madikeri. 

It is gathered that, 43 tonnes of rice, estimated to be worth about Rs  8 lakh, is rotting away and 60,000 toiletries and bathroom supplies, such as soaps, toothbrushes, plastic buckets and mugs, heaps of new clothes, and stationery material like school books and pens are piled up in the newly-constructed classrooms of the college.

Due to this, the students of Junior College campus forced to occupy the old classrooms, therefore the college had submitted a request letter to the authorities to clear the material so that the classrooms can be used for the right purpose.

The district administration has now assured the college that they will take the necessary steps to address the issue at the earliest.

There are over 500 victims at relief centres across the district, and the material is being used for them and once people are rehabilitated, the other material will be distributed among villagers and at government hostels, informed Deputy Commissioner Sreevidya.
