The parents of students of District Public School have expressed their resentment over the alleged "extortion" of heavy fee on the pretext of summer camp.

They said that the government had announced summer vacations from June 1 and had also refrained the managements of private schools not to force the students for summer camp vis-a-vis realisation of fee for the camp but contrary to the orders of the government, the DPS management under the patronage of the Hafizabad DCO the management was realising heavy fee from the students. They demanded abolition of forced summer camp and also called upon the reconstitution of management committee by including some educationists.
