Nabarangpur: As many as 51 class-X students of Bhatarasiuni girls’ high school in Odisha’s Nabarangpur district today walked 12 km to meet the Collector demanding filling up of vacant post of teachers in the school.
According to reports, the students have been facing inconvenience in their studies due to non-availability of science and geography teachers in the school. They had earlier raised the issue several times but in vain.
