Harekala may get PU college soon

 
Inaugurating the newly laid playground of the school on Friday, MP titled Hajabba, the man behind the existence of the school as ‘Aksharakranthiya Santha’ and said that people like Hajabba must be identified, motivated and lauded for their sincerity and dedication.

“The school is running successfully due to the dedication of Hajabba. He might be poor from his pocket but he is the richest man from his heart. I will try to get a PU College sanctioned for this school because it truly deserves a PU College,” he said.

MLA U T Khader said that while Dakshina Kannada district is emerging as ‘knowledge city,’ education revolution of this form holds great significance. Lauding efforts of Hajabba in bringing small government school to the national-level, he called upon the media to identify more and more people like Hajabba.
With regard to the issue that there is a proposal for construction of another government school close to Hajabba’s School, Khader said that people should make way for construction of new school at Faridnagar as there is an immediate need for the same.

“The children from that area find it very difficult to tread their way to Harekala school especially during rainy season. Hence, it is feasible to have a school there,” said Khader assuring all help to the school in future.

Hajabba, the patron of the school addressing the gathering kept forth his demand to sanction a PU College and to provide adequate funds so that the local children could be given better facilities.
Zilla Panchayat President Santhosh Kumar Bhandary, ZP CEO Shivshankar, DDPI Chame Gowda among others were present.

The school was built in 2000 and at present there are over 350 students studying here from I to X standard. Hajabba is a orange vendor at State Bank area and he has to his credit of shaping the school single handed, without much help from the government. His dedication to have the local children education bagged him several awards, recent being a cash award of Rs 5 lakh from a national news channel. Hajabba has whole-heartedly given away all the amount he has received from various awards for the development of the school and he personally continues to live in a small house, which still runs from the income he fetches from selling oranges.
