Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Prakash Javadekar has recieved a letter demanding scrapping of admission quota for MPs in the Kendriya Vidyalaya and other government-aided schools from the Janata Dal (United) (JD(U)) MP Harivansh.

The objection lifted is that initially, only five names could be recommended by the MPs for the sake of admission, but this number has been doubled by the current government. The minister puts up an argument saying that instead of this move, the government should increase centrally funded schools so that parents do not have to rush to MPs for their children’s admission.

Harivansh said, “Earlier there were provisions to allocate basic necessities such as ‘gas, telephone, scooter’ to the needy on a priority basis, but now such things are easily available without people making special efforts for it.” With this example, the MP requested scraping off quota where MPs’ consideration is taken for admissions, in his letter.

He also mentioned that such preparations should be done by the Centre so that people do not have to go door-to-door for their child’s admission. With much hope from his interaction, JDU MP says that to have a clean and credible state of politics, scraping off such privileges is not much of an option, but rather a compulsion.
