Itagar, March 19: “Aruchal is going to get a fiscal stimulus package from the Centre under the 14th Fince Commission and special focus will be given to education,” Parliamentary Secretary (PS) for Education and IPR Bamang Felix said.

Addressing a consultative meeting with all stakeholders to get first hand information on the functioning of education department in East Siang district yesterday, Felix stressed on good governce by all functiories and sought concerted efforts to create favorable and suitable atmosphere for learning environment, an official communiqué said here today.

He instructed the DDSE and his associate officers to frame short, medium and long term planning for future so that every school could provide basic amenities like furniture, good classrooms to accommodate teachers and students well besides toilets for boys and girls as well as for the facilties.

He further called for implementing the policies and programs of the government by all the stakeholders of the department and also suggested them to come up to the expectation of the public, students and department.

“The government has adopted zero tolerance for education sector and we are committed to ratiolize the transfer and posting of all categories of teachers through single window transfer and posting system to equip with the sufficient numbers of teachers in every school and determined not to tolerate any lapses by any employee of the department in the state,” he quipped.

“A mistake by a doctor or a nurse may kill a patient but a mistake by a teacher or education officer would spoil a generation,” he emphatically said.

After giving a patient hearing, the PS while admitting that his department is facing multiple challenges, expressed hope that with sustained efforts, better results could be achieved, the report said.

Later, accompanied by DDSE, SSA Coorditor, PD (RMSA) and Chief Councilor (PMC) he visited fire ravaged Gandhi secondary school and took stock of the losses.

Felix also made surprise visits to DEM Higher School, IG middle school (Banskota) and KGBV (Sawmill area) and interacted with the teachers and students to know ground reality. The PS was very upset and expressed unhappiness over the magement of the KGBV and the NGO, presently running the school as there was no boundary wall or fencing to protect the girls.

The laboratory was being used as hostel and the NGO had appointed an unqualified warden violating the norms set by the government to everyone’s surprise.

The visit also included the newly constructed Shiksak Sadan and DDSE office where Felix assured to initiate positive steps to make them full functiol soon.

On the way to Itagar he also visited KGBV Rayang where he was surprised to learn that students were attending annual examition without the presence of any teachers.

The upset PS directed the DDSE to summon the coorditor of the concerned NGO to report him immediately in his Itagar office. “I cannot compromise with the future of our children. NGOs should impart good education instead of doing business. If they fail to show sincerity and dedication our government will compel to termite them,” he cautioned.
