Against the backdrop of bogus appointment of teachers’ issue in Nagaland, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Nagaland state unit on Wednesday said the education minister was responsible for the inability of the government run schools and colleges in the state in imparting quality education.
BJP Nagaland general secretary (admn) Yambos Murry, in a press release issued here, stated that government run schools and colleges were lacking quality due to “conflict” between teachers and the government, and went on to question the minister on his non-intervention in the matter.
While acknowledging that several investigations done by state government agencies, Murry alleged that those were “just to cover-up govt’s mistakes and time buying tactic” as there was no proof to substantiate teachers in their involvement in “forgeries”. Asserting that government had no right to brand aggrieved teachers as “bogus teachers”, Murry said the educated youth have become sufferers in the hand of the NPF led government.
State BJP also held that with allegations involving such that of bogus appointment of teachers, text books and Mid-Day Meal scams, the “entire setup” was becoming “dull and paralyzed” due to the minister’s “incapable decision.”
Stating that education system would be hampered and that students would lose their careers if the minister kept “watching the drama”, the BJP asserted the education minister should step forward and ensure that quality education and better performance were enforced. It further demanded that the minister immediately reinstate the aggrieved teachers and “allow them to live a respectable life”.
