Ryan international school urging teachers, students to join BJP

New Delhi: Ryan International, a top national school, has officially espoused the BJP’s membership drive by urging its teachers and students to enroll with the party, a report in Times of India, an Indian newspaper said.

While the school management claims the drive is voluntary, teachers and student say it’s not – in fact, some teachers even claim their salary has been held back pending their joining the party.

Managing director Grace Pinto confirmed the membership drive but said it was “absolutely voluntary”. “It is sad if the staff has said that they were compelled to take up BJP membership. The management never asked students and parents to join BJP,” she said. Delhi BJP Mahila Morcha president Kamaljeet Sehrawat said Pinto is now the Morcha’s national secretary.
