Dr Ato also said two schools which he visited are without electricity and the toilets are very shabby adding that there is no segregation of gender in the toilets.

Mentioning that PWD Government High School has segregated their toilets however, he said four toilets for almost 400 students is not sufficient.

The MLA during his visits also listened to the grievances faced by the schools and said that most of the schools required extension of classrooms and proper toilets. He highlighted that most schools did not have playground facilities.

Dr Ato also stressed that under his constituency there is not a single government run higher secondary school to which he said he will pressurise the government.

He pointed out that all over Nagaland, all sectors especially in education and medical, are almost in the same situation where the centre exists but with no proper facility. He said the only way to improve is if the government can club some of the middle schools into one proper higher secondary.

As representative of the people of his constituency, the Kohima Town MLA said that it is his duty to tell the government and make the government take up the matter.

Further, he lauded the PWD High School for keeping up their performance over the years in the matriculation exam. Dr Ato became the first MLA to visit PWD GHS after it was established in the 60s.

So far, he has visited Naga Bazaar Lower GPS, Naga Bazaar Upper GMS, Sub Health Centre Naga Bazaar, PWD GHS, D’ Block GPS and PWD Sub Health Centre.

The MLA expressed his intent to visit all other schools and sub health centre within his Kohima Town constituency.
