By PDBHATIA(Bhayander,Thane,Maharashtra),Even after the show being aired on CNN-IBN and IBN-7 and the article published on theindiapost,highlighting the problems of School running in a residential building which is not allowed as per law,and pathetic infrastructure situation where lives of kids are endangered,the Education Department(and the Directorate of Education Department) of Maharashtra is yet to wake up from its sleep,to add more to the woes the whistle blower is being targeted by the Police as complaints are filed by the School owner of SUBODH VIDYALAYA,by using his political influences,before doing that the entire Residents of the building are being threatened of dire consequences by the owner and his father,It is already a known fact that RTI ACTIVIST’S are under threat for opening a can of worms,but our Government is still sleeping on it,waiting for another RTI ACTIVIST to get KILLED.
It is to be noted that as per guidelines of the Education Department no school can be run in a residential building,As a residential building cannot be used for running a school which is against the Bye-Laws of Co-operative Housing Societies moreover residential buildings are meant for residence or accomodation and not for running a school as it does not have facilities required for a school i.e. Seperate toilet facility,playground.Cleanliness conditions are pathetic which was already highlighted aswell.
During Rains the building gets flooded but the school still continues there classes with Children sitting in a pool of water which is dangerous as the buildings electric meters are on the ground floor and can cause Electrocution but who is bothered.
Today Schools are meant to be money making business more than Educational insititutions and when some one highlights it he is a vulnerable target.
Not only that the owners of the school were the developers of the building and have not yet handed over the entire documents of the building yet to the Society,its to be noted that from past 7 years the committe was headed by the brother of the developer who was the secretary and there was not even a bank balance of Rs.50000/- in the bank account of the society.
Now after the article published on theindiapost & show is aired on CNN-IBN and IBN-7 the developer Rachna Associates has started using threats of throwing off everyone out of the building by demanding papers of land,permissions granted by the Municipal Corporation,layout plans,tax receipts etc,these documents were not handed over by the outgoing secretary of the building who was the developers brother and owner of the school.
Where is the LAW & ORDER Machinery sleeping,where threats are given to Residents of the building and illegaly a School is run in it and if you speak against them threats of throwing out the residents is given.
If our HRD Minister Mr.Kapil Sibbal and the Cheif Minister of Maharashtra is reading this or if someone can show them the plight of the students and the residents of the Building we will be obliged to them.
Is the law only for the Rich class of the Masses,does the RIGHT TO LIVE peacefully without Mental harrasment doesnot fall under the NATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS ACT,If yes then why are our law makers and organisations Sleeping on this.
Below are the links of the CITIZEN JOURNALIST SHOW which highlights these problems.
Today I ask the entire readers of theindiapost to pass this message across to every one they know so that it reaches our law makers and the corridors of the HRD MINISTRY at Delhi.
My fight will continue till the end against Corrupt officials and Citizens who are not only a threat to the Civilized Society but also a threat to our Nation
