Distt- Hamirpur (H.P)
It is for your kind information that Sh. Raj Kumar Jain, press reporter of your esteemed news paper is reporting knowingly and deliberately baseless and false news time and again regarding this institution, which not only tarnishing the image of the school administration in the eyes of higher authorities but also defaming the institution throughout the state.
You can refer the new paper of dated 7th May, 2010 in Hamirpur Kesari under the heading “SHIKSHA KE MANDIR MEIN CHATTER BANEIN MAJDOOR” in which he reported and expressed the school administration as deaf & dump. Though it is clear in “RTE Act 2009” that children will clean the school campus and class rooms so that they can made socially adjustable. Not only this he gave the version of the under sign and parents of the children without making contact with them.
Continuing the same process today on 27th August, 2010 in Hamirpur Kesari column under the heading ‘JAR-JAR HUA GAUNA KURAR SCHOOL KA BHAWAN“. He again tarnished the reputation not only of school administration but also the state government & Education department of H.P. While the Panchyat elections are going to commence in a few months, by reporting false and baseless news regarding the repair & maintenance of building. He reported and appeared in the news paper that RCC roof is failing down due to carelessness of school administration & government, so parents are worried about the safety of their children. It also appeard in the paper that not to speak of new rooms, the government , education department and school administration is unable to repair the old rooms. Though adjoining of the room where he has taken snaps construction work of three rooms, toilets and stairs is under progress and approximately 4000Sq. ft area has been covered by putting slab of new construction and the process of releasing budget amounting Rs. 3.5 Lacs is under consideration of Head of Department, but he reported and appeared in the newspaper quiet opposite to it instead of praising the government & school administration for their work.
In another news February 2010, he wrongly quoted the name of Principal as Praveen Dogra while he himself visited the office where the proper name was displayed on the honor board of the principal and name plate was hanging on the door front.
Sir, everybody knows that the sale of Bedi, Cigarette & other tobacoo products has already been banned by the government within the 100mts area of school campus but after denying him time & again not to sale the same he sales the banned articles at 10 mts from the school gate between school campus and ground which tarnishes the health of innocent children and same is the reason of reporting the baseless and false news , which not only reducing the credibility/popularity of the news paper but also school admistration, education department & the Government.
In view of the above, you are requested to take necessary action against the aforesaid reporter, otherwise the school admistration will be free to lodge the damage shoot in the honorable court for Rs. 20 Lacs against the newspaper for tarnishing the reputation of school administration, education department & the Government.
