THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: BJP state spokesman V V Rajesh said that the party would not allow the Muslim League to implement its ‘Talibanism’ in the education sector.
Addressing a news conference here, Rajesh said that the Education Dept, under the Muslim League, had demoted and transferred the teachers who had served noon meal to students during Ramzan season.
Rajesh said Vadakara AEO Vijayalakshmi was demoted and transferred as head mistress, Azhchavattom High School. Last year, noon meal had not been served in many schools in Chombala-Vadakara area. Following complaints from parents, the AEO had convened a meeting of head masters and head mistresses and had arrived at a decision to provide noon meal to students who were not observing fast.
After the meeting, certain League leaders came out against the decision to serve noon meal to students during Ramzan.Rajesh said the Education Minister was behind the punitive transfer of AEO and head masters. He said the govt should reinstate the teachers or the BJP would react to such actions.
