SHILLONG: The FKJGP Central Executive Committee (CEC), has decided to hold a signature campaign throughout the State on the irregularities on the appointment of assistant teachers in Government aided Lower Primary Schools on November 27.

“We will hold a signature campaign to sought out the support of the people across the State demanding action against those people who are involve in the Education scam, which was exposed by the CBI in its findings,” FKJGP president Jo Marwein told reporters after the CEC meeting here on Friday.

He said that the FKJGP still reiterate that the former Education Minister Ampareen Lyngdoh, who had ordered to tamper the score sheets should be removed from the Cabinet.

“We would also closely follow on the activities of the High Level Scrutiny Committee (HLSC),” Marwein said.

While demanding that the committee must complete its job at the earliest, the FKJGP president said that the committee should recommend necessary punishment against those people, including the Ministers and legislators who are involve in this whole scam.

Meanwhile, Marwein informed that the CEC has also taken a serious note on the problem of drinking water faced by the people in various parts of the State,

“We have been informed that people in Garo Hills especially in Tura, are facing lots of difficulties with drinking water during the winter season. We were also told that people in Tura were force to spend upto Rs 20 for per bucket of water,” FKJGP president said.

While urging upon the Government to take immediate steps on the problem faced by the people in Garo Hills, Marwein demanded the Government to take steps in providing treated drinking water to the people in the villages.

“Many of the villages are taking water which is not treated. This is putting a serious threat on their health. It is high time for the Government to consider putting up of treatment pland to treat the water from various water sources which are use by people in the rural villages,” the FKJGP president said.

However, Marwein also urged upon the Government to ensure the early completion of the Shillong-Rongjeng-Tura road.

“The people of the State are facing lots of difficulties since at present they have to travel through Assam to come to Shillong and vice versa,” he said.

He also added that the worst part is that people have to face frequent bandhs and agitations called in Assam which affects the vehicular movement throughout Assam, thereby affecting people who travel from Khasi Hills to Garo Hills via Assam.
