Heated arguments

Meanwhile, the meeting witnessed heated arguments between Brar and HS Mamik, president of the Independent Schools Association. Mamik reportedly told the education department that he was ready to give up the minority status of his school — Vivek High School, Sector 38 — provided the government gave funds for 25% reservation to EWS students.

As of now, schools are provided 10% relief as per the land allotment scheme.

The DSE told him that it wouldn’t be possible as the school was already using the government land and could get only 10% relief. The association members plan to meet the education secretary to discuss the matter.
