Bengaluru: A day after shooting off his mouth and describing private schools as `brothels', Social Welfare Minister Mr Anjaneya made a quick U-turn. Speaking at a function on Tuesday Mr Anjaneya had flayed  private schools for collecting huge donations, and selling Saraswati, the deity of knowledge. Therefore, he said, "private schools are worse than brothels."

On Wednesday, Mr Anjaneya said that he was not referring to all the private institutions, but only the institutions which were extorting money from students, who were admitted through RTE. During UPA government tenure, students from poor background were given admission to private schools through RTE but were being charged huge fees.

 

"It is not that all the schools are doing so. Many private schools run by religious institutions are doing good work. I only said that some of the schools were working like brothels,'' he added. Shashi Kumar, general secretary of Private Education Institutions Association has threatened to file a defamation suit against the minister. He told reporters that a protest would be held against the minister.
