Nagpur: Amidst fierce opposition, the proposal to give on rent Nagpur Municipal Corporation’s Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Madhyamik Shala va Junior College to the security guards of Rashtriya Swayamevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat was finally taken back by the ruling party.
The move was vehemently opposed by the local Congress corporators after which the mayor Pravin Datke took back the proposal in the general body meeting on Friday.
It may be noted here that the RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat has been provided Z-plus security by the Central government which will be manned by jawans of CISF.
The proposal was to allot the concerned school to CISF guards for five years. After the NMC administration brought the subject on the agenda, the local Congress corporator Guddu Tiwari had sent a letter to the municipal commissioner opposing the move.
Later, Guddu Tiwari and another local corporator Sujata Kombade held demonstrations in front of the NMC Town Hall and also at the school premises. The Congress corporators’ view was that it was not proper to utilise children’s school building for the private security arrangements of a person.
This will adversely affect the education of the students. Looking at the intense opposition to the move and to save further embarrassment, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party has decided to withdraw the proposal. Reacting on the withdrawal of proposal, mayor Pravin Datke explained that it was being done to honour public sentiments.
