Phom Students’ Conference (PSC) has served an ultimatum on the Department of School Education (DoSE) to depute district education officer (DEO) and sub-divisional education officer (SDEO) in Longleng on or before August 31, 2018. 

In a press release, PSC president, A Mane Phom, general secretary, Shunglam Longbahu, pointed out that the Education department in the district has been functioning without DEO and SDEO since February 28, 2018 and June 30, 2018, respectively. 

PSC expressed dismay that even after submitting representation to the department on May 20, 2018, the department showed lackadaisical attitude towards this crucial issue. 

Asserting how could a department function without the HoDs and expect impressive results, the PSC asked the department and the state government whether they would look into the matter only after it resorts to agitation, protest and shutting down of offices under its jurisdiction. 

Further, PSC asked the state government if it was unaware of the retiring HoDs under DEO & SDEO, Longleng or was it the failure on the part of the department to apprise the same beforehand.

PSC cautioned the department against “posting or deputing an official who is on the verge of retirement and ill health or for a time being.” It warned that failure on the part of the department would compel the PSC to initiate its own course of action. 

Warns ‘erring teachers’ 

PSC has directed all the teachers posted under Longleng district to be stationed and perform their duties. It warned that action would be initiated against those erring teachers. 

According to PSC, a surprise inspection on various departments was conducted from June 13-15, 2018 under Longleng district. PSC said it was found that most of HoDs and staffs were out of station and were not performing their duties as they should. 

Further, PSC said it was also noted that HODs and staffs in various departments report to their office only at the end of the month causing public untold hardship and inconvenience for their negligence and ignorance. 

Therefore, PSC has warned all the responsible HoDs and staffs posted in Longleng district that “such negligence on their part will be dealt very seriously.”
