DoSE PD misleading Cabinet: RPP

DIMAPUR, SEPTEMBER 28: The Rising People’s Party (RPP) has accused the Principal Director of School Education Thavaseelan K of misleading the Cabinet.
In a statement issued in support of the agitating group of ad hoc teachers, the party stated that it was not surprising to note the “State’s dirtiest Department” give all sorts of excuses.
“The Principal Director, DoSE, should not shoot his mouth nor mislead the Cabinet without knowing the facts. In the ACAUT/PSAN litigation filed before the High Court, case no. 145 (K) 2017, Grade-III Ad hoc teachers were not impleaded in the case. The litigation only pertained to those posts falling under the purview of NPSC which were filled up through backdoor, that is, without examination being conducted.
“For the consumption of the general public it may be mentioned that teachers are appointed under a separate recruitment policy (with requisite qualification) which is not under the purview of NPSC examination, and therefore to label all the agitating teachers as backdoor appointees is unfair, and hurtful”, the statement read.
According to the Party, the contradictory stand of the NDPP-BJP coalition on matters of regularisation only shows lack of good counsel and indecisiveness of the Cabinet.
“Just recently in September, 2290 RMSA and SSA teachers of 2010 and 2013 batches were absorbed/regularised which means that their salary is now wholly paid by the State Government. So should the DoSE have 2 separate regularisation policies? Shouldn’t the Advisor for School Education publicly address the contradictions?
“The NDPP-BJP coalition should stop victimizing the 1166 teachers. In the meantime, the agitation teachers are encouraged to stand their ground till the State Government assures that justice will be served”, it stated.
