Guwahati: A recent letter from Axom Sarba Siksha Abhiyan (SSA) Mission has put government elementary schools in the state staring at a crisis as the state’s education department has asked the government-run elementary schools to return the unspent government funds.

The SSA in the letter to the district education authorities last month had stated that the districts should ensure the refund of the unspent funds from the existing bank accounts to the state nodal accounts with due intimation to the director of the Axom SSA Mission.

In the state, the managements of the elementary schools have been reportedly facing a major official hurdle because of which they have not been able to provide uniforms to the students.

“Official sources added that though the state government released the money to the school accounts for providing uniforms but has not yet allowed them to utilise the funds this year,” alleged Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) spokesperson Manjit Mahanta.

The Opposition party claimed that the state government has been facing an acute shortage of funds for welfare activities.

“The incumbent government is only creating beneficiaries under various schemes to create a ‘fake show’ which has multiplied the burden of loans for the government. That’s why they want the money returned which is actually meant for poor children. It’s a shame,” he added.
