Muzaffarpur: Union minister of state for HRD Upendra Kushwaha on November 7 said that 10 Kendriya Vidyalaya (KV) running in rented buildings for long might be closed due to non-cooperative attitude of Bihar government. Kushwaha told mediapersons at Nawada that the centre would soon take appropriate action in this regard. He said ten KVs including those at Lakhiarai, Aurangabad, Vaishali, Motihari, could be closed as the state government was not providing land for construction of their buildings. He said that the KV, Lakhisarai, was established in 1988 but the state government was yet to provide land for construction its building.
Replying to a query, Kushwaha said that the state government had not sent any proposal for opening a Kendriya Vidyalaya in Nawada. He said that Nawada MP and union minister Giriraj Singh had sent several proposals in this regard.Under the new Rules, the district magistrate(DM) concerned has to send his proposal to the centre for establishment of a KV along with information about availability of land for construction its building and a building to run it till it has its own building. Kushwaha described the Muzaffarur KV incident as unfortunate.
