Jamal Khan, a local resident said that the GPS Kolalai was consisting of four rooms out of which two rooms were badly devastated in 2005 earthquake due to which students of the area either studied under the open sky or torn out tents in this blazing hot weather.

He said 370 students were enrolled in the GPS Kolalai but the government had not shown any interest in its construction.

He said that most of the residents of the area were living a life below the poverty line.

Fazal Ahad, another local said they met the elected MNA and MPA for many times but except assurances practical steps yet to be taken for its reconstruction.

He said their children had also have a right to get education and state was responsible for ensuring free and quality education to every child of the country but there was clear injustice with them and being ignored in uplift projects even.

The local residents of Kolalai have demanded of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government to reconstruct the school building on priority bases otherwise they had to come on to roads for agitation.
