Although it appreciated the efforts undertaken by SIT in probing the bogus appointment of teachers under the education department, the All Nagaland Aggrieved Adhoc Teachers’ Association (ANAATA) has rejected “in toto” the ‘genuine’ list of teachers in the SIT report on grounds that it contained “many errors.”
ANAATA also wondered how the state cabinet could clear the SIT report without reading through or verifying what was written in the report. Speaking to mediapersons in Dimapur on Saturday, ANAATA members said that the list of genuine teachers in its present form was not acceptable unless it was verified by central investigative agencies. The association has demanded rectification based on the remarks made by the SIT.
Producing bulks of documents related to the SIT report in front of mediapersons, office bearers of ANAATA pointed out that the SIT had declared a number of teachers as ‘genuine’ along with remarks which clearly stated that their appointments were irregular.
“No date of creation (post),” “appointment against regularization,” “unsigned appointment order,” “no record in file,” “could not produce documents,” “regularization without interview,” “designation not mentioned in the appointment order,” “no date of appointment order,” “no qualification,” etc were some of the remarks put alongside the names of ‘genuine’ teachers declared in SIT report, according to ANAATA.
ANAATA wondered how the cabinet could overlook the report when such remarks were clearly mentioned alongside the names of ‘genuine’ teachers, and approval to the report.
Besides, the ANAATA said that while all those appointed from 1976 – 1991 has been termed as “doubtful” by the government through an earlier order, the SIT report had included some of those appointed during the same period as ‘genuine.’
According to ANAATA, those appointed within this period has been termed ‘doubtful’ as there was no file to support the appointments. The association members said that files pertaining to these appointments have been lost by government. Expressing resentment over the victimization of the director of school education, Nipusilie Angami, the ANAATA said there were many other officials of the education department, who have been named in the SIT report. Quoting a report from the SIT, the ANAATA said that the SIT had “identified persons involved in processing appointment of teachers through fraudulent means … with intention to appoint candidates without posts,” wherein the names of K. T. Sukhalu and S. Rengma figured prominently.
Meanwhile, ANAATA informed that it would be filing an RTI against SIT and those involved in the issue by March 22. The association also reminded that its memorandum to the state chief minister would expire on March 23. The ANAATA said it would resort to agitation from March 23-24 to draw the attention of the government and responsible departments. It called upon all aggrieved teachers to join hands in the cause.
