Silchar, May 7: The academic atmosphere of Kendriya Vidyalaya Panchgram, Silchar, has been completely contaminated. For the last one year or so, there have been irregular classes and even lack of subject teachers. Students of the school, around 500, have been attending the school regularly. But no classes are being held. Even the teachers are not taking classes and are avoiding their duties. Failing to find out the answers and logic behind all this, parents of all these students surrounded the regional office of Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS), Silchar on Monday. Their wards also joined in the endeavour. These students sat in front of the office, blocked the road and organized a sit-in protest demonstration.
Later, they met with T Prabhudas, assistant commissioner who acted in a very strange and indifferent way. He even went onto ignore the questions put by reporters of both electronic and print media. However, after much efforts and force exerted by the parents, he assured that regular classes would be held from Tuesday onwards. He also said that a meeting would be soon organized with the parents. It is pertinent to mention here that the school authorities of KV Panchgram have increased Rs.500 per month per student as additional fees structure, which is beyond the norms and rules of KVS. Even they have stopped admitting students in the new academic session. In this regard, a memorandum has been addressed to the Commissioner, KVS, New Delhi, through the Deputy Commissioner of KVS, Silchar region.
