Rewari (Haryana) [India], July 24 (ANI): Months after the Haryana Government upgraded a school in Gothda Tappa Dahina village of Haryana's Rewari district, students of the school on Monday again sat on a protest demanding teachers and staff for the school. A protesting student told ANI, "There no teachers of Commerce, Humanities and Science for the plus one students." Another protestor said that at the time of up-gradation, the government had assured the students that the teaching staff would become available in two-three days, whereas, it has been two-three months and no teacher has been made available. The Police who reached the spot of protest examined the case and said that the senior officials of the concerned authority have been informed about the situation. On May 17, the Haryana Government officially upgraded the government school, after students of the school sat on a hunger strike for several days. The protesting girls said that they had put forth the demand of up-gradation as they would be molested if they travel to a senior secondary school located in a different village for higher studies.
