The SBA awareness campaign was led by GS APSU Mitin Padun and besides many members from the Union and Sibum Students’ Association, GBs, PRI leaders led by ZPM also attended the programme. During the awareness program, the students also carried out a cleanliness drive in which the drainage was cleared besides removing other dirt around.

Padun claimed that Sibum village under Katan circle is a least cared and neglected village while adding that even the circle HQs Katan has no proper road, no mobile connectivity, no regular circle officer etc. With such negligence in the areas, the poor education system is also killing the future of village students, he alleged.
