சென்னை பி.எஸ்.பி.பி பள்ளியில் ஒரு ஆசிரியர் மாணவர்களை பாலியல் துன்புறுத்தல் செய்வதாக எழுந்துள்ள புகார் என்னை அதிர்ச்சிக்குள்ளாக்கியது. சம்பந்தப்பட்டவர்களை விசாரித்து குற்றம் செய்தவர் மீதும், (2/3)
அதை கண்டுகொள்ளாத பள்ளி நிர்வாகத்தின் மீதும் உடனடியாக நடவடிக்கை எடுக்கவேண்டும். இதை சம்பந்தப்பட்ட அதிகாரிகளிடம் கொண்டு செல்வேன் என்று உறுதியளிக்கிறேன். (3/3)https://t.co/xYLPEXM2ux— Kanimozhi (கனிமொழி) (@KanimozhiDMK) May 24, 2021

Reacting to the outrage, YG Mahendran, son of Rajalakshmi Parthasarathy who founded the school, reportedly sent a mail to the deans and trustees of the school, writing “I am shocked to see the social media agog with tweets and messages accusing a Teacher of PSBB KK Nagar of misbehaviour with girl students of his class. In fact a Reputed Media has sent me screenshots of the accusations going viral now on Social Media and Asking Me For Explanations. As a Responsible Trustee I pose the question.. why is it none of us have been appraised of such a thing happening especially when the parents say they appealed to the Dean and Management and got no response at all. The DAY TO DAY HAPPENINGS IN THE SCHOOL come under the purview of the Dean and Principal of the particular school branch. It is your duty to conduct an enquiry into this matter and check out the truth of the matter.”
“If the teacher is indeed guilty Severe Action should be taken against him. IF NOT the parent and student should be given a clear explanation of what really happened. They Definitely Should be Given a Hearing. Allowing it to go so far is in itself a negligence on the part of the school. THE FAIR NAME OF MY MOTHER MRS YGP CANNOT BE HELD TO RANSOM.. DHARMA MUST BE DONE. In all fairness to maintain the great legacy of PSBB created by Mrs YGP I EARNESTLY request you to make a Thorough
Enquiry even instituting a committee if necessary… Nothing of this sort has ever happened since the inception of the school.. It is in the Best Interests of the School that I write this letter to all the Trustees and to the Dean and Shri YG Rajendra. I hope these clouds will be cleared soon through
your prompt action..” the mail further read.
