Bathinda, January 24

Staff members of Sports School, Ghudda, staged a protest here on Sunday alleging the state government was planning to give its control in the hands of private players.

The protest was joined by scores of students and their parents, BKU (Ugrahan) members, Naujwan Bharat Sabha and Democratic Teachers’ Front. The staff members said they hadn’t received their salaries for the past six months.

Harjinder Singh, one of the coaches, said, “Apart from pending salaries for months, it’s been more than two years since the school received any funds and as a result, we had to cut on the diets of players. We raised the matter with senior officials of the district administration on numerous occasions but several rounds of meetings have remained inconclusive till now.” — TNS
