New Delhi. The High Court rejected the review petition demanding to leave the children studying in a school built in a colony out of the colony. The court said that the convenience of the residents of the colony cannot outweigh the interest of the general public. The court said that entry and exit from the school cannot be stopped as it will cause trouble to the school as well as the general public.
Justice Subramaniam Prasad said that children studying in primary class cannot be expected to walk from school to the colony gate in the rain and scorching heat. At the time the school opens and when the school hours end, it is natural to be crowded for which the review petitioner has to approach the school administration to appoint persons for traffic management.
Residents of a colony in Paschim Vihar area had filed a review petition seeking amendment to the earlier order passed by the court. So that parents who bring children to school in private cars, leave them outside the colony because it causes traffic jam in the colony. The petition said that due to the school, there is huge crowd in the colony area where about 475 families live. Parents park their cars there and block the road.
