A group of people today assembled in front of a private school in the city, seeking readmission of an II standard boy, who was removed from the school in the beginning of the year.
The protesters, led by the boy, Ajay’s father, S. Jagadeesh, including some leaders from Left parties, claimed that the management had given no reason for the dismissal of the boy, while the management claimed that the parents of the boy were creating problems for the last one year.
Jagadeesh was adamant that the protesters would leave the place only after Ajay was readmitted.
The management claimed that Jagadeesh used to come often to the school, where the boy’s mother was working as a teacher and harass the teachers and staff.
The management was willing to let the child complete the current year, if the parents gave in writing that they would move the boy to another school next year.
Meanwhile, a group from the Parents and Teachers Association, told reporters that Jagadeesh was creating problem for other students also, with support from political parties. “His motive is something else,” they claimed.
On Monday last, CPI MLA, M. Arumugam, along with some Party workers had squatted in front of the District Collectorate, seeking readmission of the boy.
