Haflong ITI in bad shape


When the Government has been pumping a huge amount to the Industrial Technical Institute of Assam to provide training to the unprivileged youths for their self reliant, the 25 years old Haflong ITI has failed to provide basic needs to the trainees, people alleged.


This institution is having as many as six trades like Electrician, Wiring, MMV, Electronics, Pump operator, welding and also dress making added as new trade. The conscious people alleged that trainees were not provided with proper machines during their practical class; thereby they had to face lot of problems.


Though the institute is declared as the ‘centre of excellence’ but nothing has been changed in practical. The trainees were to suffer a lot for absence of toilet and even power supply. They have to work with old machines and tools. Some times they have to cut firewood even, to help the cook. Though there had been a vehicle they cannot use the vehicle for marketing as it remained idle for several years.


People argued why authorities are engaged in useless activities like putting floor tiles in workshops instead of providing sufficient training materials for the trainees of ITI, Haflong and instead of providing adequate hostel facilities like proper bathroom, fans, and gas for cooking, etc.


Surprisingly, Sri N. H. Mazumder who has been the Superintendent of Haflong ITI for fifteen years instead of co-operating with media reportedly misbehaved with the press man while gathering news relating to the ITI for the reasons best known to him.
