After a week of nervous moments for parents of students of VK Obaidullah government School in Shivajinagar, the education department has handed over the funding of school to Waqf Board which is handled by the Zameer Ahmed Khan who is also the minister for minorities. The school that has over 1,000 students was earlier adopted by IMA group, which came under scanner recently due to the Ponzi scheme after its chief Mansoor Khan allegedly fled from the country. The school and several other institutions run by Mansoor were left in the lurch and the State Government officials were thinking of ways to keep it functioning. Now minority minister Zameer Ahmed Khan, Congress member Rizwan Arshad and education department officials have decided to hand over the financial responsibility of the school to Waqf Board. “The school was illegitimately given to a person who did not have any intention to run an education institution. We had no other option but to take over from IMA and run it by Waqf Board. The education department will run the school and the department of Minorities will support it,” Rizwan said. “We have been running around from over a week to ensure students are not denied education and the board also has certain responsibilities towards education. So it was apt to adopt that school by the board. Now, parents and students need to worry about any problems in the school and it will run as usual from this week,” added Rizwan.
