Siliguri, 07th April: Accusations have raised against English-medium schools in Siliguri of demanding the guardians to deposit the admission fees of the students. This raised many eyebrows as the country is under lockdown due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the move has made a huge impact on people’s economy.
In this regard, the Darjeeling District Trinamool Congress wrote a letter to the schools and urged the authorities to change their minds especially during such a time of crisis. Discussions with the principals of various schools were also held.
Trinamool Congress Darjeeling District President Ranjan Sarkar stated that most of the schools have accepted the TMC’s request and added that he expects the other schools to cooperate with the general public amid the coronavirus outbreak.
