Protest against suspension of school headmaster

SDMC members and parents stage a protest outside BEO's office in Koppa against the suspension of Niluvagilu Government Primary School headmaster A E Ashok.

School Development and Monitoring Committee (SDMC) members and parents staged a protest in front of the BEO’s office against the suspension of Government Primary School headmaster A E Ashok in connection with the supply of adulterated milk under Ksheera Bhagya scheme. 

The protesters demanded to revoke suspension order. “The school is facing acute shortage of teachers. Students from poor background study in the school. The BEO should submit a factual report to the DDPI to revoke the suspension order,” they urged.

The schoolchildren were supplied with urea mixed milk on September 15. A case was registered in connection with the incident at Hariharapura Police Station. Based on a report from the BEO, DDPI suspended headmaster Ashok. 

SDMC chairman M K Dharmaiah charged, “Children did not fall sick following the incident. After realising the mistake of supplying urea mixed milk, the headmaster had taken the children to the hospital for treatment. The BEO did not furnish full details in his report.”

He said after headmaster Ashok took charge, the number of students in the school has increased. The school is on the path of progress, he added.

SDMC Vice President Savitha, Old Students’ Association president H D Jayanth and others were present.
