Jamshedpur : The parents sitting in front of Carmel Junior College are not willing to end their agitation. A day after one of the parents on indefinite hunger strike in front of Carmel Junior College in Sonari fell seriously ill and was rushed to the hospital, local residents blocked road in front of the school. A long queue of vehicles were seen on the road as the residents squatted on the road demanding justice.
Shyam Dhibar, who was on indefinite fast along with five others since March 3, fell unconscious at the venue where they were staging the protest. Parents are sitting in front of the Carmel Junior College demanding their wards’ report card and promotion to the upper class.
A resident of Kagalnagar in Sonari, Shyam Dhibar (23) is a driver by profes- sion, but he along with five others had been staging indefinite hunger strike in front of the Carmel Junier College where his daughter studies.
According to information, six underprivileged kids under the reservation category were not promoted from LKG as the school did not receive the funds of RTE. According to parents, the principal has demanded 50 per cent of the total annual fees to let the children attend the class of the next session.
The school will begin its new academic session from March 21 and parents want that some conclusion should be there before the new session begins as they will anyways have to buy books for the new class.
The principal Sister M. Sylvie said that they have already given a concession to one child but some group has always threatened. “There were seven students and we have already given concession to one child. These parents never requested. I re-call meeting them only once.
They have always threatened us which was unacceptable,” said Sister Sylvie.
