Over 300 girl students are forced to take bath in open at SC and ST Girls Hostel situated adjacent to Pt Ravi Shankar Shukla University in Raipur.

On being informed, Rajya Sabha Member Chhaya Verma accompanied by Chhattisgarh Pradesh Congress Committee Spokesman Vikas Tiwari inspected the hostel premises recently. During inspection, the Rajya Sabha Member found that garbage was scattered in the hostel premises.

The students complained to the Rajya Sabha Member that there were lack of basic facilities like sanitation and potable water. The girls have to go to attend classes in morning hours but water is supplied in the afternoon. Students had made complaints to the hostel authorities but these complaints had fallen on deaf ear.

Vikas Tiwari alleged that there are three buildings in the hostel premises where girls are residing in the hostel campus. Even girls are forced to cook food by woods while there is Ujjwala scheme launched recently to provide LPG cylinders. Chhaya Verma alleged that she would raise the problems of the girls belonging to SC and ST in the next Rajya Sabha sessions.
