Imphal, Jan 13:
All Manipur Students Guardians’ Organisation lambasted the decision of the Government to appoint a new Chairman of the Council of Higher Secondary Education Manipur while Class XI and XII examinations are knocking at the door and appealed to the government to bring about an end to the turmoil.
Sumati Sougrakpam, General Secretary of All Manipur Students Guardians’ Organisation said, “The COHSEM and BOSEM are run by the revenues collected from students through fees and fines, not by any Grant from the Government. To appoint a Chairman-in- charge for 5 months and then appoint a new regular Chairman at the time of examination and that too for a body conducting examinations for the students is really unfortunate and questionable act and asked how many more Chairman are going to be appointed again. This act of appointing a new chairman by the Government has created an enmity between the outgoing and the incoming Chairmans and has disturbed the working of the Council at this time of examination.
She further said, “The examination of Class X and XII is a very important exam for a student’s career and should not be taken lightly. At this delicate timing, the appointment of a new chairman is illogical and the government should revoke the order so as to conduct the said examination smoothly.
Sumati further drew the attention of the Chief Minister to look into the matter and bring an amicable solution at the earliest, keeping in view the fate of the students.
