The NSF on Friday issued a 4-point memorandum to the state chief minister on various issues under the school education department setting the deadline as April, 9. The NSF threatened to resort to its own course of action and hold the authority responsible for any eventuality if its charter of demands were not fulfilled within the stipulated period.
The NSF said it has stated “enough” in its earlier representations demanding prompt action from the government with regard to all those anomalies unearthed by the SIT under the education department.
Rather, the government has been extending more time for the SIT thereby affecting the students and genuine teachers, the NSF said.
The NSF reiterated its demand that all those employees who were already tainted in the scandal should be immediately terminated from their service without any bias.
It also demanded instant detachment/re-deployment of all those teachers who were still attached with DIS, DEO or the Directorate establishment.
It demanded that punitive action against those erring official under the education department found/caught/ involved in the corruption should be initiated instantaneously, without any prejudice.
It was pointed out that many a times, the real culprits went scot-free within the department, thereby allowing such persons to continue enjoying the status.
The NSF insisted upon the state government to immediately declare the results of the recently conducted examination of the Graduate and the Primary Teachers which was supposed to be declared by February 25.
Besides, the 4-point charter of demands, the Federation urged the government to maintain stringent check and balance for “judicious outcome” in case any individuals / organization/groups intervene/obstruct the proceedings of the investigation in the education department. The NSF said it was totally committed to work out against such interference or corruption, in the larger interest of student community vis-à-vis for the society. The NSF memorandum was signed by its president Mutsikhoyo Yhobu and general secretary, O. Wati Jamir.
Reports of the special investigation team (SIT) under the vigilance commission submitted to the government on February 26 has unearthed as many as 1,156 bogus teachers and 1,096 cases of appointments made under “doubtful circumstances”. Moreover, as many as 1,084 teachers were physically unavailable for verification.
It may be mentioned that following the constitution of a Special Investigation Team to probe into the various anomalies of appointments of teachers in the School Education department and check bogus teachers, the state government had stopped issuing extension of service to the adhoc teachers since January 2009 last.
