Bhopal: Coming as a blow to government's ambitious plan of providing education to all, minority institutions of the state have sternly said that they would not grant admission to students coming from poor section of the society under their quota.

What is more shocking is that some of the schools which gave admission to poor students under the RTI Act earlier have now taken a u-turn.

A similar case has surfaced in a school named All Saints School located near Idgah Hills of the city.

Under the government's ambitious plan to provide free and compulsory education to all, 25 percent seats have been reserved for the students coming from poor and deprived section of the society.

However, admissions into nursery and class 1 were started in the month of February this year on the request of principals of some of the schools. Under this, admissions on almost 90 percent seats have already been completed.

Meanwhile, harried parents have made a request to DEO to intervene into the issue who is supposed to have issued a notice to some of the schools in this regard.
