By Express press service

COIMBATORE: The Coimbatore City Municipal Corporation (CCMC) and city police have ordered separate investigations after a video clip of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) members allegedly held a shakha (meeting) at a school premises CCMC primary went viral on social media on Sunday.

Members of the Thanthai Periyar Dravida Kazhagam (TPDK), who staged a protest outside RS Puram’s school, said allowing such events inside schools would disrupt community harmony. TPDK General Secretary K Ramakrishnan urged the state government to ban the RSS from holding shakhas in public places.

Denying the allegation, an RSS official said no shaka took place and the volunteers only cleared the school campus. “As part of our annual event, volunteers clean up public places and educational institutions. Our cadres cleaned the school of the corporation.

The collection was organized on Sunday in 23 places in the district. Meanwhile, CCMC Commissioner Mr Prathap said no organization had been given permission to hold an event. “Officials from the Ministry of Education are studying this issue. I also asked the head of education at the company to look into the matter.
