Naik's written request for admission refused

Airoli college asks student to get Guardian Minister to call personally; Naik does so on the spot at Janata DarbarForget about letters signed by local corporators, the school authorities are also refusing to entertain a letter written by Thane District Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik. In one such incident, a letter written by Naik, submitted by one of the students seeking admission in FYJC, was turned down by the Airoli institution. The college asked the student to get the Guardian Minister to make a personal call to the college authorities to put in a request.
Koparkhairane resident Rajesh Tiwari (name changed on request) wanted admission in Airoli-based New Horizon Junior College and so he submitted a letter signed by Naik to the college for getting admission in the management quota. However, the authorities told Tiwari that the written letter would be of no help and that it would take a personal call from the senior politician himself.
Accordingly, Tiwari approached Naik, who is also State Minister for Excise, Environment and Labour at his Janta Darbar at Vishnudas Bhave Hall, Vashi on Friday. "Since the letter had no effect, we have come here to meet Naik personally and request him to make a phone call to the college," stated Tiwari, who has secured 70 percent marks in the SSC exam, and is seeking admission in Science stream. The college's cut-off is 75 percent.
Naik responded positively to the visitor's request by promptly calling the college authority on the spot and personally requested in favour of the student. The Minister coolly told the student that he should now go to the college on Monday for the necessary follow-up and the jubilant student, and his parents, left the Janata Darbar satisfied.
With the admission season on, a majority of the attendees at the Janta Darbar comprised of students and their parents, who were keen on the Minister's intervention to help them secure an admission in the college of their choice. There were also a handful of the usual visitors at the public gathering, putting forth issues ranging from poor bus connectivity in the nodes and bad condition of roads, to labour problems in local industries and civic mismanagement at the micro-level. And the Minister obliged them all.
