Dehradun. Sainik-dominated Uttarakhand is going to get the gift of two more Sainik Schools soon. The Dhami government has started the process regarding this. One Sainik School each will open in Kumaon and Garhwal of the state. Sainik schools will be opened in Rudrapur in Kumaon division and Dehradun in Garhwal division. These proposals have been approved in a meeting chaired by Chief Secretary Dr. SS Sandhu. At present there is only one Sainik School in Uttarakhand. Which is in Ghorakhal of Kumaon division.


Giving information, Director General of Education Uttarakhand Banshidhar Tiwari said that it has been proposed to run Rajiv Gandhi Navodaya Vidyalaya and AN Jhan Inter College in Rudrapur as Sainik School. Which is being sent to the Center for approval. According to Director General of Education Banshidhar Tiwari, the central government has decided to open 100 Sainik Schools across the country. States were asked for proposals for schools meeting the standard for this. Under this, Rajiv Gandhi Navodaya Vidyalaya Dehradun and Inter College Rudrapur in Uttarakhand are meeting all the standards of Sainik Schools. The proposal of both is being prepared and sent to the central government. After the proposal is sent, the team of the center will inspect the respective schools.

Please tell that there is only one Sainik School in the state which is in Ghorakhal. Which is completely operated by the Ministry of Defense. However, the construction work of Sainik School was started at Jakholi in Rudraprayag district. This school was approved, but due to lack of coordination between Sainik Welfare and Education Department, the matter of construction of this school has been pending for a long time. The work was entrusted to Uttar Pradesh Nirman Nigam after sanctioning Rs 10 crore from Upanal and others. On behalf of the UP Nirman Nigam, this amount was spent in building the boundary wall and road. Since then, the matter of construction of the school building is pending.
