Land belonging to the Block Resource Center (BRC) of Chinhat block in Lucknow got encroached by the contractors involved in building the Government Girls Inter College (GGIC) nearby. A few months ago, the block education officer of Chinhat approved construction of the GGIC building in the premises of the existing Poorva Madhyamik Vidhyalaya situated opposite the BRC. Land, which was to be given to the GGIC was measured in the presence of all the concerned authorities. But, after the commencement of the construction work, contractors started building boundary walls encroaching upon the playground of the BRC. The encroachment led to a huge protest by many acknowledged teachers' federations of the region. These federations have warned the authorities that if the encroachment is not removed soon, teachers from across the region will demonstrate on the roads of Lucknow. For a very long time, the BRC has been supplying its ground for the public and collective meetings held by these federations. The center is also used to conduct annual conferences and school competitions.
