Taking note of the write ups in the media about the report of the SIT Vigilance on the bogus appointment of teachers by various individuals and organizations including political parties, the DAN MLAs Forum has appealed to all concerned to extend their support and cooperation to the Special Verification Committee so that the matter would be concluded in a “just and fair manner.”
The Forum further appealed to the people to refrain from issuing any statement which might adversely mislead the public.
Four members of the Forum including its convenor, Dr Nicky Kire, joint convenor, Nuklutoshi Longkumer, treasurer, Shetoyi Sumi and secretary, Vikho-o Yhoshu in a joint statement said that the Forum which had seen the SIT report and discussed the burning issue, was making its views of the report.
The Forum stated that the SIT have verified 5057 teachers in the state by visiting all the districts and physically verifying and interviewing those teachers, who have been given adequate time to report even after the last date of verification was notified in the media as well as through the DEOs and DISs.
Elaborating on the “doubtful” teachers based on the SIT report, the Forum said this category of teachers were those who were suspected of possessing fake educational certificates, forged appointment orders of appointing authority and doubtful vacancy of posts, purportedly vacant from 5 to 40 years, which required further authentication by the concerned authority. It said that authentication needed to be done by the educational institution from where degrees were obtained, expert opinion for verification of the signature of the appointing authority and the actual vacancy position to be confirmed by the department concerned.
With such information, the Forum said that the doubtful teachers (if any) should hopefully be cleared.
The Forum said it “strongly” felt that the government had taken the right decision to give one last chance to the doubtful, absentee and bogus teachers to clarify their position for which the Special Verification Committee has been set up, comprising of the district administration, district police, etc to look into the genuine claims of the teachers who might have been inadvertently placed under such categories.
Sympathizing with the aggrieved teachers who have not received their pay for a long time, the Forum fervently appealed to all to give the Committee “this last chance” so that the genuine ones who had been inadvertently listed elsewhere could clear their names with necessary documents in the interest of the students’ welfare.
The Forum said that the department in future should also work out a mechanism so that such issues were not repeated.
