70 special needs students fasted to get government’s attention
Former Chief Minister of Kerala, Oommen Chandy sat on 12 hour fast with 70 special needs students, their parents and teachers on Tuesday.
The 12 hour fast was kept outside the Secretariat in Thiruvananthapuram.
The reason behind the fast was a demand that 33 special schools should be included in the category of government-aided at the earliest. The schools have been making this demand for a long time.
The state government however stated that they had no clue about such a demand made.
The 70 students were from each of the five districts and marked the 70 years of independence of the country.
Oommen Chandy also supported the demand and sat with the special needs students for two hours.
