Damoh (Madhya Pradesh)[India], Jun 1 (ANI): Two government-run schools in Madhya Pradesh are being used to store Tendu leaves even as the institutes are scheduled to reopen soon after vacations. Authorities have ordered an inquiry into the incident.
The leaves, which are used for manufacturing beedis, are being stored in two schools in Madiyado and Rajpura villages in the Damoh district of the state.
"No such order has been passed by the office of the District Election Officer that Tendu leaves be stored in schools. The schools are reopening from 10th and this would disrupt the studies," said B S Rajput, Block Education Officer, Damoh.
He added that proper investigation would be carried out about who gave the orders for converting the schools into Tendu leave godowns. (ANI)
