GUWAHATI, June 20: Without ming the very person or placeholder targeted former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has said that Assamese blood does not flow in the veins of the State Education Minister. Gogoi was addressing the media at Rajiv Bhawan in the city on a slew of issues today, including the policy adopted by Dispur for the recruitment of teachers in the proposed model schools in the State. Reacting to the policy of restricting the posts of model school teachers exclusively for English medium school passed-out candidates, Gogoi said: “If a person schooled in Assamese medium can become the education minister, why can’t he/she be a model school teacher? There’re many candidates, who were schooled in Assamese medium schools, working as professors in a number of universities in the US and other countries abroad. Candidates schooled in Assamese medium schools are Supreme Court judges, besides being IAS and IPS officers. In fact, Assamese blood doesn’t flow in his veins – neither of Lachit, nor of Chilarai. Under the BJP rule Assamese is being neglected in Assam where the speakers of the language had to agitate for the dignity of their mother tongue. What the minister means to say is that only reading in English medium will do, nothing else. If there’s no language, how will there be a tion?”
