As the new tutorial calendar year commenced in Tamil Nadu and educational institutions reopened on June 13, Monday, much more than 75 students boycotted the initial working day of the university and staged a sit-in protest inside the Block Instruction Officer (BEO) in Alangulam, a city in Tenkasi district of Tamil Nadu. The college students had been introduced to the office by their dad and mom and they were being demanding a individual federal government school in their Keezha Kuthapanchan village.
Afternoon meals were served to the protesting learners in the BEO office. Subramanian, the Sankarankovil District Educational Officer, held a peace talk and dispersed the mother and father and kids. He visited Keezha Kuthapanchan to look at options for a new faculty and identified as the villagers to the Chief Educational Office in Tenkasi for the upcoming level of talks, as noted by ENS.
The gathered little ones and mom and dad belonged to a variety of educational institutions located in the Alangulam town, along with the nearby Thalaiyuthu, Puthupatti and Mathapattinam villages. The need for a new governing administration college is fairly old. It was five many years back that the Keezha Kuthapanchan-based Hindu moms and dads stopped sending their wards to a govt-aided main school, located in their village alone, alleging that the lecturers were preaching Christianity to their small children rather of educating.
Due to the fact then, they have been demanding a governing administration college in their village. It has been claimed by ENS that even soon after recurring visits to this village, the University Training Section officials refused to endorse a new college citing the existence of an aided school. A person of the protesting moms and dads, Arumugam, claimed that all-around 165 college students from his village will not go to college right until an announcement for the building of a new college is produced. “To battle the conversion initiatives taken by the teachers of the aided faculty, we sent our children outdoors our village to study. However, they are sensation unsafe in the nearby villages,” he included.
