The proscribed People’s Revolutionary Party of Kangleipak (PREPAK) on Thursday stated that there has been rampant corruption in the Education department in connection with the recent recruitment of Graduate Teachers in the state as well as the recruitment of assistant professor, non-teaching staff of Dhanamanjuri University.
The organisation has received information about the large-scale corruption in the recruitment organised under the aegis of the Education minister and commissioner/Higher Education, PREPAK stated in a release issued by its publicity and propaganda LeibaakNgaakpa Luwang.
Concerning the recruitment of 920 graduate teachers for School Education and 88 assistant professors, a special Task Force of PREPAK has found that a huge amount of bribes have been amassed. These bribe money must be returned to each and every candidate by the minister and commissioner concerned within this ongoing month, PREPAK stated.
If the edict issued by the organisation is not followed by showing high handedness, they will be held solely responsible for any outcome, it added.
Instead of drafting a concrete recruitment and transfer policy, the state government is busy hiring and recruiting staff on temporary and contract basis by collecting large sums of bribes which is akin to committing daylight robbery, PREPAK alleged.
Such Adhocism has robbed and cheated many hardworking youths by ensnaring in the web of corruption, it added. They have been forced to sell their properties and lands while their sincerity, hard work and struggles have been compromised, eventually obliterating the path towards truth, fairness and justice in this society, PREPAK stated. The future of many youths has been destroyed and they are left astray without any direction or goals, it added.
It stated that to put an immediate halt to these attempts being made to destroy the Education sector, PREPAK is fully prepared to take up strong measures. The organisation will put a strong focus into the Education sector to create a corruption free environment for the student community, it added.
