Sushmita Dev demands “Independent inquiry” on Cachar College Principal’s “dereliction of duty” and alleged assault on professor
Trinamool Congress MP, Sushmita Dev wrote a letter to Dr. Ranoj Pegu, the Education Minister of Assam. Sushmita Dev, in her letter to the Education Minister, mentions the issue of a section in Cachar College versus IAS Rohan Kumar Jha squabble.
She reiterated her letter to the chief minister of Assam about the shortage of examination centres. “As you are aware that the Recruitment examination for Grade-III & IV jobs ran into serious troubles due to the fact that the Centres for Barak valley were clearly insufficient. It shows the casual attitude of the state govt. towards employment of the youths.”
The letter further adds, “What has made matters worse is that allegedly there was an altercation between one teacher, Mr Swadesh Ranjan Das and the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar and as is being reported the D.C. Cachar has assaulted the teacher. The students are protesting the fact that they were treated badly by the Administration and the next examination seems to be running into trouble too”.
The Rajya Sabha MP has hoped for immediate intervention, “To resolve this situation and set up an independent inquiry to look into the incidents of assault or mismanagement”.
Sharing her concerns, she also wrote, “I am quite disappointed with the failures of the Principal of the College who must be made accountable for what seems to be a serious dereliction of duty. This incident is unfortunate and has put a question mark on the otherwise prestigious institution of Cachar. We take pride in our college which has an excellent reputation for quality education. This incident requires accountability of the people concerned and justice must be done through an immediate independent inquiry and intervention to end the impasse in the greater interest of the students, teachers and the College.”
