Steep fees, Govt girls hostel lying vacant, accommodation cheaper outside...

Meenakshi Kakode from Chhindwada in Madhya Pradesh says Govt had built a 100 seater hostel for girls 2 years ago by spending Rs 1 crore. But the hostel is lying vacant because they demand Rs 2000 as fees. Poor adivasi and other village girls say they find cheaper accommodation outside. Govt should reduce the cost also to make use of the hostel. Please call Principal Govt college at 07162236477 to help the girls. Meenakshi can be reached at 8962276941
