Day in and out we get to know about new school projects but the issue with them is that they lack basic amenities for girls students. While boys can answer the call of nature in the nearby bushes of behind the school compound, the girl students can't.
New school projects are coming up in villages but nobody bothers about the sanitation and as such, even if toilets are provided, either they couldn't be locked from inside or they are not cleaned regularly.
If they meet all these parameters, they would be located away from schools, making them insecure for girls.
If the government is serious with the implementation of the Right to Education Act, it has to make sure that girls' are provided with neat and separate toilets.
