      Raipur, June 17, 2009: Once again the private school authorities have demonstrated that they are not bound by the order of the Raman Singh government in Chhattisgarh.

     Looking into the scorching heat condition in Chhattisgarh, the State Education Department had declared holiday of all schools from June 16 to 30, 2009.

     However, many schools located in Raipur and Durg districts have refused to obey that order and asked the students to report to the school regularly else face expulsion or fine.

     The Holy Cross School in Raipur has not only asked its students to report for class despite the state government order, but going one step ahead, it forced the small children on Tuesday to stand in the heat wave condition under the direct sun for longer period without any valid reason.

     Holy Cross was the same school which refused to give its students summer vacation from April 25, although the state government had closed down all the schools of the state due to severe heat wave condition in that state from that day.

      The Raman government had declared summer vacation from April 25 to June 15 and again from June 17 to June 30 due to heat wave condition.

     But small children of holy Cross had to attend school till the end of April, when their friends from other schools had the privilege to remain in side their house during that period.

     When attempts were made to talk to the School Education Secretary Nand Kumar, he was, as usual, not available for comment.
