Government demands evidence from schools of students watching 'Pariksha Pe Charcha'

Government demands evidence from schools of students watching 'Pariksha Pe Charcha'”

Dalit students of a school in Himachal Pradesh's Kullu district were made to sit separately outside their classrooms during the live telecast of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "Pariksha Par Charcha" on Friday. "Disciplinary action has already been initiated against the headmaster".

The complaint, written in Hindi on a school notebook, also included allegations that they are also subjected to "caste discrimination during midday meals". "Even the headmaster does nothing... he also practices untouchability", they said.

The students were made to watch the programme on TV at the residence of head of the school management committee, as reported by The Indian Express. The report says that courtyards where Dalit students were forced to sit was dirty and apparently used for cattle and horses.

A video clip of the incident has also surfaced, leading to a local organisation, Anusuchit Jati Kalyan Sangh, taking up the issue with the school.

The primary education officers in Tamil Nadu, nevertheless, verified to TOI that they had actually gotten directions from the HRD ministry to send the types to all schools in the state. "But that's not enough", said a member of the state education department.

"This matter has come to my notice today".

Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, who returned from Delhi Monday, said, "Once the government gets a report from the Kullu DC, action will be taken".

State Education Minister Suresh Bhardwaj told Indian Express, "I have also been told that Dalit students faced discrimination in the school earlier too, during midday meals. If the incident is confirmed, criminal liability will be fixed,". "We will be ready with the report Tuesday". Arun Sharma, the state secretary of education said that the government would seek a report from the local administration and would take suitable action.

Now schools have been asked to submit proofs in form of photos and videos that students watched the telecast of PM's guiding session following Ministry of Human Resource Development's (HRD's) direction to all state governments to collect reports on the session soon after the conclusion of the programme.
