7,800 solar lamps lying in open
From Our Correspondent
GUJRANWALA: About 7,800 solar lamps worth Rs 120 million to be distributed among brilliant students have been dumped in the open at Comprehensive High School here.
It is pity that the responsible officials ignored the precautions inscribed on the cartons and did not bother to shift them under the roof even during the rains. When this correspondent contacted the Education Department officials to get their version, they immediately sent the staff to the school to shift the lamps to a safer place and said that waterproof sheets had been spread over the stock. They said that the lamps were safe and no damage had been reported.
