‘Involvement local bodies creating positive results'

The involvement of local bodies in providing infrastructure facilities to government schools have created positive results in the State, said Paloli Muhammad Kutty, Minister for Local Self Government. The Minister was speaking after inaugurating the stage constructed at Ponnurunny Government Lower Primary School here on Monday. A library was also constructed at the school using the financial assistance from the Kerala Sustainable Urban Development Programme.

It was the decentralisation of power that helped the local bodies in supporting the government schools which were lacking infrastructure facilities. Though the intervention of the local bodies in some schools had created undesirable results, it is not the case with most of the schools, he said. Most of the local bodies have supported the schools in a constructive way. The support of the Kochi Corporation has helped the school improve its facilities, he said.
