The Derelict State of Galpha Multiple Campus New Building in Adanchuli Rural Municipality, Humla

The sorry state of the Galpha Multiple Campus building in Adanchuli rural municipality has become a cause for concern for students, faculty, and the local community. Despite being under the management committee's responsibility, the building remains incomplete and derelict.

Budget Allocation and Land Acquisition Issues

The campus management committee was given a budget of 20 lakhs by the Karnali state government to construct the two-room, one-story building. The amount was paid by the rural municipality, but the building remains unfinished even though it was scheduled for completion in the previous financial year.

According to Ransur Rokaya, the head of Galpha Multiple Campus, the land where the building stands was owned by the then Ward Chairman of Ward No. 3, Datta Bista. The former ward president was paid five and a half lakh rupees for the land from the building construction budget, which is not a legal provision.

The transfer of land ownership from Datta Bista to the campus was agreed to be completed by June of the previous year but has not been done yet. Without proper ownership, the management committee has not continued with the rest of the work, leaving the building in a state of collapse.

Lack of Budget and Responsibility

Aside from the 20 lakh rupees invested in land acquisition, the committee says that there is a lack of budget amounting to fourteen and a half million rupees to continue with house construction and other necessary expenses. The rural municipality claims that they are unaware of the work done during the tenure of the former president, Dal Phadera.

The former village head, Dal Bahadur Fadera, chaired the Galpha Multiple Campus management committee. However, the responsibility of the incomplete and derelict state of the building is not solely on him but the entire management committee.

Overall, the sorry state of the Galpha Multiple Campus building in Adanchuli rural municipality is a problem that needs to be addressed immediately. The management committee should take full responsibility for the incomplete and derelict building, work with the rural municipality to secure the budget needed for completion and seek legal means to transfer ownership of the land.
