DEWAS (MP): Information comes at a price, and who can know this better than a Kendriya Vidyalaya teacher who has been transferred to Kargil in Jammu and Kashmir for seeking information about alleged corruption.

"I was transferred to Kargil and was also relieved by the school administration here the day they received an order in this regard as I have exposed corruption in purchase of books, construction of playground and illegal felling of trees among others and sought information about it under RTI," Manjulal Kajodia said after beginning his protest against his transfer.
Mangilal Kajodia began a non-violent protest against his transfer in front of the Bank Note Press (BNP) here in whose premises the Central School is situated.

He announced that after staging Satyagraha till June 30, he will observe hunger strike by eating food once a day from July 1-15 and after that go on "fast unto death" if his transfer and issues raised by him are not addressed.

The school authorities said since they got the transfer orders from higher authorities, they have relieved him accordingly, but refused to comment on the issue of alleged corruption raised by Kajodia.

Local leaders and organisations have extended support to Kajodia in his fight against alleged corruption in the Kendriya Vidyalaya.
