TN govt hasty in arresting headmaster for student's death;Ramadoss
Villupuram, Tamil Nadu, Nov 23 (UNI) Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) founder-leader S Ramadoss today said the death of a girl student in a Matriculation school at Omalur near Salem in Tamil Nadu recently was quite unfortunate but a section of the media was exaggerating and diverting the issue.
Talking to newspersons at his Thailapuram residence in Villupuram district, he alleged that the state government had acted hastily in arresting the Headmaster and staff members of the school without even waiting for the completion of the investigation.
Chief Minister M Karunanidhi should take steps immediately for reopening the school, he added.
The minority institution has rendered yeomen service to the Backward sections in education for the last five decades.
Dr Ramadoss said equality in education should be implemented with immediate effect. Some private institutions were opposing it to spoil the education system in our country, he alleged.
He said the government should not hesitate to implement 27 per cent Reservation in higher education for Backward castes.
He lauded the party leader and Professor M Ramadoss for remaining stubborn on the implementation of 27 per cent Reservation at a stretch in yesterday's United Progressive Alliance (UPA) meeting held at the Prime Minister's residence in connection with the issue and criticised the other parties for their decision to accept the implementation in phases.
He wondered why the Government was backtracking on the issue of Reservation which it first accepted without any hesitation on May 23 this year.
The Government should take steps to fill-up the vacancies in a phased-manner and regularisation of the Contractual employees was the need of the hour, added.
