AAPSU, ANSU and ACR hail Kurung Kumey DA crackdown on teachers
ANSU for equal distribution
ITANAGAR, Aug 13: Kurung Kumey district administration which had cracked whip on
erring teachers, uniwwitngly found itself at the receiving ends of accolades from
All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union, All Nyishi Students Union and Arunachal Citizen’s
Opening a literal Pandora box’s, the District Administration had carried inspection
of various schools including the remotest villages in which it was found that around
40 teachers mostly SSA have not visited schools where they are posted for last 2
The step taken by Kurung Kumey administration has been appreciated by citizens and
student communities, as a major step towards cleansing ailing education department.
In a press statement, AAPSU President Takam Tatung lauded Kurung Kumey Deputy Commissioner
Bidol Tayeng and his team for initiating this noble step. “AAPSU always believe
that teachers are the most important section of society and if they do not perform
their duty honestly, then future of the state is not safe,” said Tatung. He urged
other district administrations to take cue a from Kurung Kumey administration and
come down heavily on those teachers who are not honest to their profession.
“ If our students are to compete with the students of other states, we have to provide
them best of education. I would request all authorities to at least keep education
sector fair and clean, Tatung said.”
“We understand the fact that teachers, especially those posted in interior areas
work in difficult condition. We value their contribution to the society but some
of their colleagues are destroying their image and they should catch hold of such
irresponsible teachers,” Tatung stated.
Further AAPSU has hailed Upper Siang District Student Union for their crusade against
tobacco items being sold nearby school premises. Tatung also called up on state government
to strictly implement anti-tobacco law and punish those erring shopkeepers who are
openly found selling tobacco items to the students.
Arunachal Citizens’ Right (ACR) expressed that it was heart- rendering and shocking
to know about the abysmal condition of the Govt. schools of Kurung Kumey district
due to the absence of teachers in such a large number and for such long periods.
Kurung Kumey is one of the backward district recognizes in the state legislative
Assembly besides, having lowest literacy rate in the country according to the UNDP
Human Development report of 2005. Hence, such huge numbers of teachers absent from
school institutions has not only violating the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory
Education Act 2009 but also crime against the younger generation stated ACR Chairperson
Meanwhile, All Nyishi Students' Union (ANSU) has demanded education department to
take stern action against those teachers found absent from their place of postings.
Education is the most important Govt. functionary department which generates human
resource and quality citizens on which all round development of the state is dependent.
The Union expressed dismay at the state Govt. for showing lackadaisical attitude
towards the education department in the allocation of funds. The Union demands the
state Govt. for prioritizing Education and Health sectors which are the foundations
for the social development of the state in the SPB meets.
While appreciating the initiative of the Deputy Commissioner of Kurung Kumey district
by personally visiting the various schools in the interior areas, the Union urged
the elected MLAs, Panchayat leaders and district based students Unions to support
the commendable move of the district administration. Expressing similar view with
AAPSU, union urges the other district administration to follow the same line in the
interest of the people as the success of the SSA is, to a large extent, dependent
on Deputy Commissioner of the district as it being the Project Director of the Mission.
The Union further said that the appointment of SSA teachers has become a political
weapon for the leaders and quality; and deserving candidates are not taken into consideration.
The Union opines that there would not be shortage of teachers if the teachers are
equally distributed on need base. On the basis of the data, the highest numbers of
teachers are posted in the capital complex and the district head quarters and most
of them do not attend the schools and some of them take one class a day or in week.
The report was already submitted to the Education Minister and commissioner.

for other PR officers working under trying conditions in different districts of the
state. He further adds “As is the wont of our country, awards usually do not go to
the deserving person but in Onyok Pertin’s case he fully deserves the award for his
untiring effort”. Bosai further says that Pertin’s achievement has raised the esteem
