Responding to query to news report about shortage of lecturers and classrooms in Mon district where students who has recently passed the HSLC examination could not be given admission, the minister said that the department would first confirm the news report and if found true, necessary measures would be initiated wherever necessary.
“We’ve Wankhao College, Mon and some few newly upgraded Government Higher Secondary School, but the allegation that no lecturers were appointed may not be completely true. Moreover, in one single year, government can’t jump and provide everything” he added.
