‘Make it must for politicians, babus to enrol their wards in govt schools’
15 Sep 2015

CHANDIGARH: The Punjab and Haryana high court on Monday issued a notice to the Haryana government on a public interest litigation (PIL) seeking directions to the government to make it compulsory for politicians, bureaucrats and other government officials to educate their wards in government schools.

Petitioner Jagbir Malik, a high court lawyer, stated that the move would help in improving the condition of government schools. The Haryana government should be directed to withdraw the children education allowance being paid to the government employees, in addition to their salary. The petitioner alleged that the “caretaker of schools” were not giving due attention as their wards did not go to study in these schools.

The division bench of justice SK Mittal and justice MS Chauhan has sought government response on the petition by October 15.

The condition of government schools in Haryana was “critical”, he said, further stating that schools lacked drinking water facility and had no separate toilets for girls, besides having electricity problem.

The court was also told that there were no “regular and qualified teachers” and the children were being taught by “ineligible and unqualified teachers”.

The petitioner also alleged “nepotism and favouritism” in recruitment of teachers, further stating that the reason behind that was the children of bureaucrats and politicians were not studying in government schools and only the children of poor farmers or labourers are enrolled in these schools.

Hence, proper attention was not paid by the government to these schools.
