Fee Row: Parents protest against DPS Budgam

Budgam: Scores of parents Thursday staged a protest against Delhi Public School for demanding transportation fee from them for the duration when the school was not functioning.

Eyewitnesses told news agency CNS that scores of parents assembled outside the school at Humhama area and raised slogans against DPS Budgam. The protesting parents alleged that School Management has been finding new ways and means to loot the parents. “On daily basis the school authorities are sending us SMS’s and asking us to deposit fee including transportation charges. When we approached the management they warned us action against students in case we fail to deposit the fee,” they said.

The parents alleged that school authorities always mint money from the parents on the one or the other pretext. “How can they demand fee when the matter is sub judice. Government is yet to file the response before the Court on the issue,” they said.

No official from Delhi Public School Budgam was ready to comment on the issue. (CNS)
