A total of 274 government primary school buildings in eight upazilas here have been declared unfit for holding classes.

Deshgaon Government Primary School (Hajiganj') head teacher Md Shafiqur Rahman told The Independent that they had been carrying on academic activities inside the risky school building.

"On rainy days,we are send back home to avoid any untoward incident like the collapse of the roof," said a student.

In Hajiganj upazila, the building of Gondhorvopur Government Primary School (no. 28) is also dilapidated. In 2018, the building was officially declared abandoned.

Headmistress Selina Akter has said: "We have 200 pupils. We have no way but to arrange classes in the abandoned building."
