School panel clarifies on privatisation rumour
BISHNUPUR, 13th Jan: Denouncing the reported move to privatise their school, students of Kumbi Awang High School staged a sit-in-protest in front of the school Saturday. Apart from the students, teaching and non-teaching staff and members of School Management Committee also took part in the protest. Speaking at the protest site, school management committee secretary Nongmaithem Muhindro said that there is no plan to privatise the school and the statement made in this regard by retired headmaster Budhichandra was not true. Stating that some people are spreading rumour about privatisation of the school, Muhindro appealed to students and parents to cooperate in making the school a better one in near future. He also appealed to authority concerned to resolve the misunderstanding at the earliest so that normalcy is restored in the school.
