Congress Legislature Party(CLP) in a memorandum submitted to the state Governor on Thursday, stated that transfer and appointment of excess teachers under the DAN government during the past seven years was made “at a price” and that important documents destroyed by the department.
Quoting the SIT report, the CLP said teachers posts became “saleable commodity” and those listed under bogus,absentee,excess etc categories ended up being victimized. The CLP said the only fault of those teachers under such categories was that they had purchased the post which were on sale.
Further, the CLP said the bogus teachers scam was not the only issue and demanded thorough investigation on other schemes such as mid-day meal and SSA programmes.
The CLP said the SIT report indicated involvement of high-level government functionaries and therefore, while identification of bogus teachers was important, it was more important to identify those officials responsible for the entire scam. CLP demanded a thorough probe to identify those officials “so as to nip the problem in the bud”.
Terming the setting up of committees after committees by the DAN government as “irrelevant”, the CLP urged for instituting a logical investigation to ascertain which functionaries were involved, persons responsible for such appointments, number of such appointments made with government approval, number of appointments made with forged signature and the people involved in destroying important government documents as cited in the SIT report.
It may be mentioned that, following the submission of the SIT report on February 26, 2010, a committee was set up under the chairmanship of commissioner & secretary (C&S), School Education, Mathung Kithan to recommend preventive, remedial and punitive measures.
The committee, then recommended that teacher listed in the SIT be divided into three categories: Summarily termination of the 1156 bogus teachers and recovery of salaries; further verification and authentication of suspected documents, records, certificate and signatures of 1095 doubtful teachers; withholding of salaries of 1084 teachers till verification was done within a given time frame of one month.
Further, acting on the SIT report, the committee recommended immediate suspension and initiation of disciplinary proceedings against director School Education, Nipusilie Angami; the then deputy secretary School Education and presently deputy secretary Home, Muroho Chotso; the then under secretary School Education and presently under secretary Cooperation, L Yantso Khuvung; and the then monitoring officer Directorate of School Education and presently UDA Works & Housing Department, Secretariat.
The committee also recommended strict enforcement of government rules and regulations and directives as suggested by the SIT and approved by the Education minister.
