Students of Dhunot UZ wade through Ichhamati daily to attend classes

Our Correspondent

BOGRA, June 17: Over 200 students of Dhunot upazila of the district have to cross the Ichhamati river daily during the rainy season to attend classes.

Local sources say the Ichhamati divides Madarvita village from the eastern side of the upazila headquarters. During the rainy season people of the village have to cross the river due to absence of a bridge over it.

Students of Madarvita Government Primary School and Pardhunat Government Primary School cross the rive daily risking their lives, said Headmaster Jamal Hossain of Madarvita Government Primary School.

In a recent visit this correspondent found the students were crossing the river taking their books in hands to save them from getting wet. Other villagers were also crossing the river taking goods.

"I wade through the river everyday to go to school regularly. My parents always worried about my safety whenever I cross the river", said Sumaya Parvin, a student of class four of Madarvita Government Primary School.

Hossain Ali, guardian of Nannu Islam said local administration repeatedly promised to build a bridge over the river, but the villagers are yet to see any result. He said the people of 13 villages of Kalerpara union will be benefited if the bridge is built.

Dhunat Upazila Primary Education Officer Kamrul Islam said a bridge is essential for removing the problems of the villager, especially for school-going children.

Dhunat LGED Sub-Assistant Engineer Abu Talim Hossain said he has sent a project proposal for contract a bridge to the higher authorities.
