Mumbai, May 3: Bombay Catholic Sabha [BCS] has condemned the intimidatory tactics by  the local Shiv Sena corporator Ramesh Kargaonkar from Tembli Pada demanding admissions and threatening the St Xaviers School, Bhandup principal Fr Francis Carvalho with dire consequences if his requests are not met.

BCS has sought the intervention of deputy chief minister and home minister, in order to provide security to the school and the principal.

For the last several days Ramesh Kargaonkar has been putting pressure on the school principal to accede to his requests. As there is a clear policy by the Archdiocesan Board of Education, the principal has explained to the corporator that he will have to go by the rules.

On Wednesday April 30, things became worse when the corporator threatened that he would misbehave with the women staff at the school, if his demands were not met.

A first information report (FIR) has been lodged by the school principal with the Parksite police station in this regard.

'We have urged the deputy chief minister to ensure that adequate protection is provided for both the school and principal,' Fr Francis Carvalho, spokesman of BCS informed Daijiworld correspondent.

    Yet another case of these goons taking the law into their own hands.These creatures have no respect for the constitution and the rule of law .Religion has become a farse for them to misuse it for their narrow and selfish political gains.They swear in public about morality and dharma and in practice do exactly the opposite.

    How dare the corporator threatens to misbehave with the women employees.Such is their respect for women. A few months back one MP from the BJP elected from Gujarat misused his office to illegally send women abroad by falsely impersonating his wife's name in the passport.They have no values and ethics and will go to any extent to further their lopsided agenda and amass wealth.Hope at least now we will read through their game and shun them.
