Students in trouble as RBISE officials 'stop' working
Rawalpindi, Jan 13: Students are facing problems because officials of the Rawalpindi Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (RBISE) have stopped working because they don't have a place to sit and work, as protesters had burnt their office.
Sources in the RBISE said that students and their parents keep on visiting the board office to get resolved their issues but the board officials are using delaying tactics. They said that many officials go to their homes after marking their attendance and they are following this routine after the chairman's office was burnt during a protest. Sources said that the owner of the building has also given notice to the board to renovate the building as soon as possible and the RBISE has written to the building department for survey and start renovation.
Students said that they are visiting the board office daily but no one is ready to work and many simply say that till the renovation of office they couldn't start working. They said concerned authorities should take action against such officials who are creating problems for students and not attending the office regularly.
When contacted RBISE spokesman Arsalaan Cheema, he said that the board has asked the building department to complete survey and start renovation work as soon as possible.
Talking about the routine work, he said that all board officials are working properly and performing their duties. He said they have shifted some officials to the inter-branch building so that they could continue working. The news
