High-level inquiry demanded into the affairs of ME school

From our Special Correspondent

SILCHAR, April 12: Bishnupriya Manipuri Students’ Union, Bishnupriya Manipuri Ganasangram Parishad and Bishnupriya Manipuri Krishak Sangstha have demanded high level inquiry into the affairs of Bhubaneswar Nagar ME school in Katigorah area of Cachar district. These organizations have brought to the fore various irregularities and anomalies of the school in question in respect of the administration as well as the management. The demand for inquiry was raised in a memorandum submitted by these bodies to the Chief Minister of Assam, Tarun Gogoi, on Wednesday here.

Gopi Das Sinha, member, Assam State Linguistic Minorities Development Board and Chief Adviser of Bishnupriya Manipuri Students’ Union, has alleged corruption in connection with the provincialization of venture schools in Cachar district in which the district elementary education officer, Kabil Uddin Ahmed, block elementary education officer of Katigorah block, Dilip Kumar Deb and other clerical staff of DEEO office are, according to him involved.

He further alleged that due to their negligence and involvement, two teachers of the school were forced to go on fast unto death in the month of February last. It indicated the involvement of the persons named by him in corruption.

Gopi Das Sinha pointed out that the inquiry report of the district administration has established without any doubt the fact that the headmistress and the secretary of the Bhubaneswar Nagar ME School submitted particulars of undeserving teachers for provincialization of their services by fabricating and manipulating the records. It was strange that despite the report of the district administration, the district elementary education officer and the block elementary education officer have not taken any action against the headmistress. He sought the intervention of the Chief Minister in the matter to cause high level investigation so that action could be taken against the officers concerned as well as the headmistress of the school at the centre stage of controversy.

  1. Whenever any wrtten complain made by us, whether or not we addressed to CM,(not chief minister). As if CM is our next door neighbour.Every now and then, we hear of memorandum been submitted to CM. Has any one of us heard of any Sanstha like Mahasabha,Sahitya Sabha,Student Union, Sangram parishad,Woman organisation etc ever given any statement on follow up? I mean, has any sanstha tried to inform the masses the fate of that very memorandum? Nay ! never. These are the modus operandi of keeping so called NGOs name alive.

The 'Star' Krishankant Sinha of Space City Sigma

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi It is a myth that the all-knowing Internet knows everything. One such myth relates to old television stuff aired on Doordarshan before 1990. Search in Google “Space City Sigma”, the search engine would throw up reminiscent results from the people who still long for those days. Those days were really golden days. Krishankant Sinha in the role of Captain Tara in Space City Singma For those who have watched Doordarshan some 15 to 20 years back, am sure they will have nostalgic memories of it. The days when possessing a now ubiquitous looking television set was a luxury. It was a neighbour’s envy product. It was a visual product to showoff, to flaunt that we have a television set . Those were the days when black and white, locked television was rarely found in homes. The days became immortal for teleserials like Ramayana, Mahabharata, Swami’s Malgudi Days (Ta-Na-Na-Na…), Ek-Do-Teen-Char (Title song: Ek do teen char, chaaro mil ke saath chale to
