Imphal, May 13: Kangleipak Students’ Association (KSA) today warned serious form of agitation if the concern government authority failed to take necessary action against the demolition of Phouden Upper Primary School at Wangkhem Assembly constituency. The student body also opposed government decision to recruit primary, upper-primary and graduate teachers on mark basis instead of conducting normal procedure in the recruitment.
Talking to media persons General Secretary of KSA S. Bidyananda said that Phouden Upper Primary School was demolished without proper permission from of the headmaster of the school as well as from the authority of the State Education department. He said the school was demolished by a written order of the MLA of Wangkhem Assembly constituency, K Meghachandra to the Phouden Youth Club.
Bidyananda said, Secretary of Phoden Youth Club (PYC) issued a meeting circular on March 27, 2016 for auction of Phouden Upper Primary School on March 31. The PYC then submitted an application to MLA K. Meghachandra seeking permission for demolition of the school building on March 29. On the letter head of the club the MLA countersigned it by writing “pl. allow as propose and demolition work may by authorized to the PYC”. Following that letter head the club carried out the demolition work on April 4. As the demolition of the school had no knowledge of the Headmaster, the matter was put up to the notice of the ZEO Thoubal to take action against those who demolished the school on April 5, 2016
Bidyananda questions whether a school can be demolished with an order of MLA without consulting the state education department. He said the government is letting free hand to the abolition of government school instead of improving it.
“Government or Education department should constitute and inquiry committee into the matter and take action against all those responsible for demolition of the school”, Bidyananda said and added that the KSA will launch serious agitation if the plead is not converted into action.
On the other hand the KSA said that recruitment of Primary, Upper-Primary and Graduate teachers on mark basis are unfortunate as the state has witness the effect at the aftermath of the entry of CBSE in the last few years. General Secretary of KSA, S Bidyananda said that some students who appeared in the schools had got high marks irrespective of their qualification. The KSA appealed the education department and government to conduct the recruitment in UPSC or MPSC exam pattern using OMR sheet. The KSA further said that if the Education department fails to issue another order in pursuance with the demand of the KSA within 5 days, the KSA will launch intense form of agitation.
