Condemns the government over dishonest appointment of teachers

TURA: The South Garo Hills SET Passed Candidates Association (SGHSETPCA), have decided to hold a public procession in protest against the alleged irregularities in the appointment of Assistant teachers in the government Lower Primary schools in 2009-2010.

SGHSETPCA said the Association will be holding the public procession on November 20, at Baghmara, South Garo Hills as a demonstration to object and condemn against the government which dishonestly appointed teachers on the recommendations of certain politicians.

Saying that they were ousted from the appointments because they were never approached by any politicians and bureaucrats and did not give money to any appointing authorities, nor were they related to any appointing authorities.

SGHSETPCA said it strongly condemns the State Government for the discrimination and its unjust treatment.

“This is the moment to fight back for our rights, of which corruption had deprived us for long” said Fardinand N Sangma, General Secretary of SGHSETPCA. He also added that all the people of the state should support their fight against the malevolence of corruption.

Earlier this week, All Garo Hills State Eligibility Test Passed Association (AGHSETPA) also held a public rally in Tura in protest against the irregularities and also submitted their demands to the Meghalaya Chief Minister through the Deputy Commissioner West Garo Hills.

AGHSETPA is demanding for the appointment of the passed SET candidates for the vacant or created posts of Primary School teachers, for regularisation of the SET cleared Contractual Assistance Primary teachers to permanent service.

They also demanded that all the SET passed candidates must be appointed before advertising new vacant or created posts for primary school teachers and has given a deadline of 7 days to the authorities to look into the matter and fulfill their demands failing which the Association has threatened to organise further agitations in the near future.

According to a CBI report, majority of the candidates under five stations; Jowai, Shillong, Amlarem, Tura and Dadenggiri were appointed on an irregular manner by changing their original marks on experience, education and qualification.

Former Education Minister, Ampareen Lyngdoh was accused of instructing the then Director, Directorate of Elementary and Mass Education (DEME) to change the original score sheet prepared by the five boards, to fulfil ‘recommendations’ of several politicians including the Assembly Speaker Charles Pyngrope.

The CBI conducted the inquiry after the Court directed the agency to conduct a thorough probe into the entire matter after several deprived candidates had moved to the court seeking justice
