GUWAHATI, March 2: The Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) has joined the bandwagon against the move to make Sanskrit a compulsory subject till Class VII in all schools. It has alleged a well-orchestrated conspiracy being micro-maged and monitored from gpur in the move.

In a statement issued in Guwahati, Parishad president Biraj Kumar Talukdar charged the government with preparing to recruit Sanskrit teachers from outside since the state, as of now, lacks the required strength. “But we won’t allow outside teachers to be recruited in our schools,” said Talukdar.

Talukdar said the AJYCP is never opposed to Sanskrit in schools since it is the ancient language which needs to be promoted and preserved in schools and colleges. He, however, said that the government is in a haste to impose the subject as a compulsory one. “The decision is too premature in view of the shortage of teaching staff in hundreds of schools and many of these schools have been running with one teacher,” he said.

In his statement, the AJYCP president questioned the intention behind the move when many schools have been falling short of staff and thousands of TET-qualified youths have been waiting for appointment.

Talukdar said, “Where the government will get so many Sanskrit teachers? This is not unknown to Chief Minister Sarbanda Sonowal and his Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma. The conspiracy is being micro maged from New Delhi and gpur. Lack of Sanskrit teachers in home would force the government to hire thousands of teachers from outside.”

The AJYCP demands an early step to provide adequate teaching staff in all schools apart from free textbooks to the students and recruitment of all TET-qualified candidates before making Sanskrit a compulsory subject in schools.
