Private builders in Lucknow encroached upon 4000 square feet land of the Lalbagh Girls Inter College and erected a multistorey complex on it. Later, the complex was turned into a shopping mall. Parents of the students along with the residents of the area lodged many complaints with the Lucknow Development Authority. People allege that LDA could not do anything due to pressure from the higherups. In an inquiry, the then Basic Shiksha Adhikari (BSA) of the district found the school administration guilty of illegally selling the school land to the builders. The BSA wrote to the authorities of the education department suggesting strict action against the school administration but nothing happened. People have now written to the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for help.
