Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray today wrote a letter to the managements of Mumbai based schools asking them to accord top priority to the safety of students. The letter said any carelessness on part of school administration towards safety of students will amount to breach of trust that parents have placed in them. "I shall not tolerate this; because the future of Maharashtra's children is of utmost importance to me," Thackeray said in the letter. A copy of the letter was shared with reporters today. Thackeray said, "Parents place their trust upon schools as they believe that the teaching and the non-teaching staff and the agencies involved will take due care of their children.
Because of the grave incidents that have occurred in the last few months, their trust in the system has been shattered." Party general secretary Shalini Thackeray said, "NCRB data shows that in 2015, the state registered highest number of crimes against children." The MNS workers will be personally handing over these letters to the school administration in coming days, said a party leader.
