PSAJ hails action taken against history sheeter Amit Kapoor

‘Third party actors should be disallowed from playing politics on education’

Schools, parents already abiding by directions of High Court with regards to fee collection

Jammu, July 06 (KNS): Private Schools’ Association of Jammu (PSAJ) today lauded Directorate of School Education Jammu for recommending strict action against a history sheeter Amit Kapoor who was resorting to hooliganism and misleading people with regards to fee collection by the private unaided educational institutes.
According to statement issued to KNS, the Association said that the action taken against Amit Kapoor has been a long pending demand of schools, educationists and respected members of the society. “The history sheeter Amit Kapoor has been organising protests in front of schools and issuing self styled statements which created huge confusion among public. Despite the directions passed by High court and the Department of Education, this person and certain other third party actors tried to mislead people by asking them to refrain from paying any kind of fee thus jeopardising entire education sector,” said the spokesperson of PSAJ.
The Association said that with regards to fee collections all schools are committed to abide by the directions of high court and every step is being taken to tackle the whole situation in a humane manner. “There is a clear direction from High Court and the education department with regard to fee collections and both schools and parents are abiding by the rules. But unfortunately some third party actors like Amit Kapoor started playing politics on the issue and created discord among public. With their actions, these third party actors threatened the foundations of the entire education sector,” said the spokesperson. “He even defamed higher officials of education department on social media. Displaying the phone number of officials he would ask people to harass them day in and day out.”
While schools have heaved a sigh of relief on the action taken by Director of School Education Jammu against Amit Kapoor, the Association further demanded that such strict action be taken against other third party actors too who defame schools, officials and teachers for their ulterior motives. “The irony is that Amit Kapoor’s children study at central government school and yet he would protest against private schools. He would even blackmail them,” said the spokesperson. “There are many other such persons who needed to be dealt according to law (KNS)
