THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: CPI state council has called for a judicial probe into the corruption involved in the allotment of Plus-II batches and schools. The council urged the government to conduct the probe after removing Education Minister P K Abdu Rabb from the post.

A statement issued by the state council said that the government had flouted all criteria stipulated for allotting Plus-II schools and batches in the state.

“The priority in the order of government and corporate management had been flouted to favour single managements. 95 per cent of the schools were allotted in the aided sector. Though there were more deserving government schools, priority was given to single management schools,” the CPI state council said. “Over 20 managements, including the MES management, had raised the allegation that they had been denied schools and batches as they could not give the bribe,” the statement said.
