Talking about the attitude of authorities concerned towards the issue he said that officials of the Sindh Education department, judges, elected representatives, and representatives of different non-governmental organizations had time and again visited the school and assured to resolve the issues but no headway was made in this regard as yet.
Member of GSTA Mirpur Sakro chapter Shiraz Memon said that following inattention of the concerned authorities one of the famous educational institutes of the district was on the verge of collapse and there were several schools across the district Thatta facing similar sort of problems; he noted
