Protesting against the alleged donation demanded by the Government High School in Ammapet, parents along with their children and members of Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) staged a sit-in-protest outside the school premises here on Thursday.

Parents said that while the application was issued at the office for class VI to X, the head master demanded that the parents should get a letter from the Corporation Commissioner or Mayor or MLAs for getting free admission or they should pay Rs. 10,000 as donation for Parents Teachers Association.

They said that the institution being a government school, demanding money is against the law, and wanted the district administration to take action against the school head master.

They also condemned the political intervention in admissions and warned of further protest if action is not taken.

However, the school headmaster denied the charges and said that under no circumstances had the school demanded any letters or money from the parents for admissions.

Ammapet police arrived at the spot and held discussions with the protesters. Later they withdrew their protest and left.
