Liromoba MLA Nyamar Karbak on Wednesday announced that the old furniture of all the government schools in his constituency will be replaced in a phase-wise manner.

The classrooms of Kamba Government Higher Secondary School in West Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh wore a new look on Wednesday as all its old wooden desks and benches were replaced by new ones.

Karbak inaugurated the new furnishings in the presence of Kamba additional deputy commissioner R Rakshap, DDSE Eto Ete, ZPC Babom Romin and other dignitaries.

Speaking on the occasion, MLA Karbak said his vision is to “make the schools of Liromoba constituency free of wooden desks and benches as they are less durable and unsightly and replace them with steel ones.”

“The old furniture (desks and benches) of all the government schools of Liromoba constituency will be replaced in a phase-wise manner. We will try our best to complete this process by the end of this year,” Karbak said.

He appealed to the education minister not to sanction any more funds for wooden benches and desks for his constituency.

The legislator further informed that funds to procure the new steel desks and benches for the Kamba Government Higher Secondary School were managed from different sources including his local area development fund.

Karbak along with the support of the local officers, public leaders, and well-wishers earlier managed to make all the government schools of the constituency blackboard-free.

The blackboards of the schools were replaced by whiteboards.

The 27-Liromoba Assembly constituency has 3 government higher secondary schools, 2 secondary schools, 6 upper primary schools, 2 residential schools, 1 inter-village school and 35 lower primary schools.
