The recognition of schools will be cancelled if school managements took children studying up to sixth standard to dharna and rasta roko programmes, without permission from their parents, District Collector K. Sasidhar warned on Saturday.

He directed Kadapa DEO K. Anjaiah to initiate steps to cancel recognition of schools which take young students to protests without securing permission of parents, according to an official statement. “Who would be responsible if any untoward incidents occured in protests in which children take part”, he said in the statement.
