SRTC employees’ kids denied entry in school
Srinagar, Nov 13: A private educational institution at Rainawari today barred the children of striking employees of State Road Transport Corporation from attending the school for non-payment of monthly fee.
“We were told to get the fee and then sit in classes,” a group of four children whiling away their time outside the school premises told Greater Kashmir.
“It is impossible for our parents to clear our dues. My father has not received his salary from the past five months and the school authorities are not willing to accept the reason for non-payment of the dues,” one of the students said.
He said that his father had to borrow money from a relative to treat his (child’s) mother.
The SRTC Employees Union president, Shakeel Ahmad Kuchay, said several students had been barred from appearance in 9th and 10th class examinations. “Students were not allowed to sit in these examinations. I appealed the principals of several private schools to allow them to continue their studies as otherwise their career might get ruined,” he said.
He mentioned a Rajbagh student, Muhammad Yaseen Shah, who was barred from 9th class examination by a private school for his failure to pay his fee.
“While the government may chose to be indifferent to the plight of 4,000 employees, it should at least think of their children, whose academic career is at stake,” Kuchay added.
