Homage paid to Kumbakonam school fire victims

Staff Reporter

NAGERCOIL: Activists of League for Child Rights - Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry and Mathuram Action For Social Technology Reconstruction Trust observed a two-minute silence and lighted candles at Kothaigramam as a mark of respect to those students who were charred to death in the Kumbakonam school fire tragedy.

The local unit of the forum also passed a resolution, urging the Government to implement an equal, qualitative and compulsory free education to all students throughout the country.

The Government should also ensure insurance policy to all students and fix the distance for the construction of noon-meal centres from the classrooms in order to prevent fire mishap, if any, in future.

The Government had fixed very nominal amount for purchase of vegetables. But it should be increased so that essential nutriments for the growing children could be served.

Yet another resolution urged the Government to take necessary steps to reopen the Government Primary School at Kothaigramam.

Meanwhile, activists of the Bharatiya Janata Party led by the Nagercoil municipal council chairperson, Meena Dev, observed a two-minute silence and lighted candles.

Members of the All India People Welfare Society led by its director, Christopher Dhas, also lighted candles at Aralvoimozi.
