A parent told the media that in the first round under RTE, my daughter Sanidhya got an admission card for admission in Sunlight Pre-School, Ghanteshwar area, Jamnagar Road. So it took three days to check where is this school in Ghanteshwar, but the school was not found. So my wife and son approached the District Education Officer. From where the number of school principal Chetanbhai Bhatti was found. On contacting him, his phone was coming switched off. Later, the next day, Acharya called me and came to meet me at Madhapar where I lived.
