Naidu urges AP CS to rescue differently abled children

Vijayawada : Telugu Desam Party National President and former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Wednesday urged Andhra Pradesh Chief Secretary Adityanath Das to come to the rescue of the differently abled children belonging to the ‘Hidden Sprouts School’ in Visakhapatnam.

Mr Naidu strongly objected to the demolition of the ‘Hidden Sprouts’ campus without prior notice and demanded immediate justice be done to the displaced children.

In a letter sent to the Chief Secretary here, the TDP Chief urged for taking serious action against the erring officers who resorted to the demolition in collusion with the land mafia operators. “The latest in this Government’s non-stop demolition acts in Visakhapatnam is appalling and disgusting.

The state government deliberately targeted the Hidden Sprouts, a no-profit school for children with different intellectual and physical abilities”, he regretted.

The former Chief Minister said that the said school was leased by the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) in 2013 with two rooms and is currently running with about 190 students.

It is to be noted that the majority of the school children come from financially unstable families.

Decrying the demolition, Mr. Naidu said: “The Government authorities on June 5 demolished the temporary sheds and seized the school premises on the next day.

The demolition has been carried out against the principles of natural justice and without giving any written notice. It is a shame that such an atrocious act was allowed to be committed in a civilised society.

Words cannot express the anguish of such an act in a democratic and constitutionally ruled country like ours.”

The TDP chief said that all civilised norms of law and justice have been grossly violated by the state government.

He lashed out that the YSRCP Government had lost the moral right to remain in power after the demolition of the school for children with different intellectual and physical abilities. There was a stronger need to support non-profit organisations serving society in true spirit.

Justice needs to be done to the school children currently enrolled at the Hidden Sprouts, Mr.Naidu said.
