NGO Justice For All claimed the colleges run by the management lacked labs, libraries and playgrounds. They also alleged that classes were being conducted there in May, violating government norms

The State Human Rights Commission has on Friday asked the Board of Intermediate Education and the police to submit a report about the alleged human rights violations in the Narayana Educational Institutions.

Petition

In the light of the recent suicide by a student K. Sai Kumar from Narayana Junior College, Madhapur, an NGO named ‘Justice for All’ filed a petition in the SHRC seeking action against the institutions.

The NGO attributed the suicide to pressure and harassment by teachers, and questioned how classes were being conducted in the month of May in violation of government rules.

Further, the college lacked facilities such as playground, labs, and library, and did not have physical education department.

No permission

No fire safety measures were in place at the college, nor did it have permission to function in the locality, it alleged. Medical facilities and psychological counselling centre were also absent.

Instruction to police

The commission admitted the petition, and issued orders to the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Madhapur, for investigation into the matter, and submission of report by July 24.

Report was sought from the Secretary, BIE, too with the same deadline.

Having studied at Govt. Arts College, Rajahmundry and subsequently away from AP for a decade while in CES, I am in for a shock in 1982 when I came to know of these private institutions imparting intermediate education. Despite quality teaching and individual attention, these institutes do not have any infrastructure like laboratories, teaching aids and play ground for the growth of a student's personality. Hats off to Board of IE managing all this knowingly. Due to govt. callousness no play grounds exist now. Let us device with help from GHMC, HMDA how to create the infrastructure to help young students who are the future.
