Khattar visits Gurugram school, meets students whose bus was attacked
Gurugram/Chandigarh, Feb 2 (IANS) Over a week after their school bus was attacked by miscreants in the name of protest against film “Padmaavat”, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday made an unscheduled visit to the G.D. Goenka School, Sohna, in Gurugram and interacted with the students and teachers.
Khattar praised the children, teachers and bus staff for showing courage in the face of an adverse situation.
The school bus was pelted with stones by some miscreants, allegedly belonging to the Shree Rajput Karni Sena, on January 24 during a protest against the release of the movie “Padmaavat”.
While sympathizing with the school children, the Chief Minister said: “Since I saw this incident on the television, what kept boggling my mind was why it should have happened to the little children. Though I am not feeling well, yet I decided to meet you all.”
“When the stones were being thrown at their bus, the children not only showed courage but also braved the situation with poise and calm. Expressing concern over their security, the Chief Minister assured them that adequate arrangements would be made by the state government to prevent re-occurrence of such incidents,” a state government spokesman said in Chandigarh.
