A day after a high school principal in Kerala was transferred for apparently ticking off the state education minister for arriving late to her school function, the principal met Chief Minister Oommen Chandy with the appeal that he revoke her transfer orders.
K K Urmila Devi, who was transferred from the government-run Cotton Hill school, later told reporters that she had not insulted the minister, but apologised if her words had hurt anyone.
“I wanted to prove my innocence before my students, colleagues and parents of Cotton Hill School,’’ she said.

Responding to the development, Education Minister P K Abdu Rabb said a decision on the principal’s plea would be taken after consulting the chief minister.
“The situation has changed with the principal making an appeal to the chief minister. We will take a decision on the matter,” he said.
According to sources the Kerala government is planning to transfer her to another school within the city if she could not be reinstated to her old school.
Earlier on Friday, opposition parties disrupted proceedings in the Assembly for third consecutive day in protest against the government’s decision.
Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan said the government should have heard the Dalit principal, before shunting her out and said she was denied natural justice. He threatened to intensify the agitation if the government did not revoke the decision.
