He complained that no officialfrom the state government had bothered to even listen to their plea for the many years and officials were not even following high court orders.
Residents said that the Nakodar high school was established in 1856 and fulfilled all conditions laid downby the government for its elevation to the senior secondary level. After passing out of high school, students were forced to take admission in a private school and all families could not afford such high fees.
