Seoni, MP, Sep 22 (UNI) Students of a missionary school here today boycotted class and staged a demonstration protesting the school principal's decision not to allow pictures of goddess Saraswati to be put up in the classroom.
Principal Shalini Singh has ordered that pictures of goddess Saraswati be removed from the classroom and no new pictures of the deity be put up. Angered at the decision, students of class XI (Arts) boycotted the class.
Ms Singh said she had given the order stating the government had not given any such order that picture of a deity be put up in a missionary school.
Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) district president Narendra Thakur strongly condemned the incident.
A meeting of the school management, students and the district administration was organised in the control room here.
