Kolkata: “People can run schools. But in the disguise of giving education they cannot combine radical blind religionism with it. If it comes to our notice, we will definitely look into it and take proper action against them,” state education minister Partha Chatterjee said at the Assembly on Tuesday said.
The Education Minister told the Assembly that the department, besides,125 schools, were keeping an eye on 493 others.The West Bengal government would take “proper measures” if the RSS-run schools were found imparting training to students with sticks in the disguise of educating them,.
Further the Minister claimed to move on SC “We had secretly collected information and found that around 125 schools, mostly situated in North Bengal, have not taken any NoC from us (education department) but are running these schools on their own. We have told them they cannot do so,” Chatterjee said.
He said that those schools moved court with political backing and are now allowed to function without the state education department’s No Objection Certificate.
