Solapur (Maharashtra): Solapur Social Association, a prestigious minority institution of Maharashtra which runs Primary, Higher Secondary Urdu school, Science Junior College, College of Arts and Commerce, Degree courses D. Ed, B. Ed etc. As many as 9000 students are getting education from this premier institute of Solapur.
But unfortunately, it is surrounded with some controversies continuously since past few years and further development of the institute is at stake.
Earlier M N Wadwan was the chairman of the society and management was functioning smoothly and giving its best. As soon as M N Wadwan died in 2012, dispute among society members began and it is still going on with high intensity.
Now a days Solapur Social Association is under the scanner of media due to a structure in the school premises which is claimed to be illegal. As per the media reports and information available with this portal, a group of people raised their objection and submitted memorandum to the municipal authority to demolish the same.
Speaking with theshahab.com, Ex Head Master Akbar Qureshi said that the said structure is not safe for the students because it has no strong foundation and no proper ventilation. If the school needs more class rooms they should rent permanent and strong building, instead of doing temporary arrangement on weak walls. Qureshi added further.
High school Head Master A. Jabbar Shaikh Informed that we have received a notice from Solapur municipality to demolish it. Now we have taken stay from court. According to Shaikh, considering more admissions, last year we had to start a new Division for Jr. College of Science students. And to make sitting arrangements for newly admitted students we had to construct class room to meet the need.
He says, temporary shade of steel sheets was already there. That was in fact temporary arrangement of class room in the premises purely for students and educational purpose. He said that we are ready to pay the penalty and do the other formalities to regularize the structure.
