DIS Tuensang who had been accused of selling text books in Assam has stated that he had transported “outdated old stock” from Tuensang to Jorhat for disposal and to procure office stationary out of the sale proceeds.
According to DIS Tuensang S.Lanu Imchen, the Assam Police had objected to the sale of the text books in their area and therefore, after obtaining clearance from the Nagaland government, the matter was settled and after which he took back the books to Tuensang.
The DIS further stated that the book were “out of use” for the current syllabus besides there was no space to store them.
He has further expressed regrets for his action and apologized to the students for not obtaining due permission from the higher authorities to transport the books to another state.
Meanwhile, the four students’ body including Confederation of Chang students’ union (CCSU), Yimchunger akheru arih-ako (YAA), united Sangtam students’ conference (USSC) and Khiamniungan students’ union (KSU) have placed two-point demand before the authority with regard to the case. A joint press statement issued Monday, the CCSU president Y. Hongkin Chang, YAA president I.S. Ato Yimchungerü, USSC president Likhumba Sangtam and KSU president Chonda Khiamniungan demanded that the authority return the text books to Tuensang and that the erring officer be terminated from service without pension and other service benefits.
Further, the unions cautioned that they would resort to their own course of action if their demands were not be fulfilled within ten days and for which they the department would be held solely responsible.
They also demanded that termination order should be handed over to DEO Tuensang on or before April 22, 2010. The unions claimed they found that “erring officer” acted without any specific directions and communication from the competent authorities of the directorate of school education.
The signatories also stated that attempt to sell the textbooks was carried out without the knowledge or consent of either the DEO Tuensang or the DC Tuensang , which they said, amounted to breach of legal office duty.
They said if the textbooks were old or outdated though meant for Tuensang, the manner in which it was sought to sold revealed a mala fide intention.
The four unions underlined that erring officer “recklessly and willfully” carried out for self gain which they said was “beyond the degree of reasonable tolerance.”
The union further said that the action took place when over the years, the student community and the concerned officers were making hue and cries for want of more text book supply.
