SILAPATHAR, May 21 - The only technical institute of Dhemaji district, namely Dhemaji Polytechnic located at Simen Sapori, is in a pathetic shape at present.
The Government Polytechnic College has been running without regular employees, teachers or permanent hostel facilities, and even sans a proper building.
The Government Polytechnic College was established in 2017 in the greater interest of the area and the state. However, the building of the Polytechnic College is yet to be completed. The windows, doors and other essential paraphernalia of the building are still languishing in an incomplete state and deteriorating by the day.
Due to non-availability of doors, 16 computers were stolen from the college premises during the last few days. The condition of the classes too are in a dismal shape. The teachers have not received their remuneration since the last 10 months. Not surprisingly, several posts are lying vacant in the Government Polytechnic College.
Similarly, Dhemaji Engineering College too is still awaiting inauguration due to non-completion of the building.
The situation as mentioned above amply testify how the state government is negligent towards uplift of technical education despite tall claims on the contrary.
