APYC Calls for Thorough Probe into Alleged “Illegal” Appointment of PRT Teachers by SIC

ITANAGAR, May 24: The Arunachal Pradesh Youth Congress (APYC) has urged an immediate and thorough investigation into the alleged “illegal” appointment of PRT teachers in the Longding district.

In a formal representation to the Superintendent of Police, Special Investigation Cell (Vigilance) of the Arunachal Pradesh Police, APYC President Tarh Johny informed, “We have been made aware of a grave malpractice in the Longding district, as reported by the All Longding District Students’ Union (ALDSU), wherein 28 PRT teachers were appointed without any advertisement or interview.”

The APYC raised questions, stating, “It is surprising to note that while numerous existing teachers under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) are seeking regularization despite years of service, and many deserving candidates who have cleared CTET and APTET exams are awaiting opportunities, how can fresh candidates be appointed as regular teachers without following the proper recruitment procedures? This undermines the established norms and signifies a deliberate act of fraudulence.”

Moreover, any appointment requires the approval of the relevant authorities at all levels. Therefore, the APYC emphasized the necessity of a thorough investigation to uncover the facts and hold the culprits accountable. The APYC demanded, “This case warrants a comprehensive investigation that spans from the Commissioner (Education) level to the Deputy Director of School Education (DDSE) in every district. The responsible individuals must be identified and legally punished, regardless of their status, in order to set an example for others.”

The APYC also alleged that the appointment process was deliberately planned to evade information leakage through the Right to Information (RTI) Act, based on information from undisclosed sources.

Furthermore, it is important to note that the recruitment of PRT teachers is not within the purview of the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) or the Arunachal Pradesh Staff Selection Board (APSSB). The responsibility lies solely with the Education Department, as stated in the representation.

In light of these circumstances, the APYC requested that the Special Investigation Cell (Vigilance) register a case and promptly initiate a thorough investigation across the state. The investigation should cover all relevant authorities, from the Commissioner (Education) to the DDSEs in each district. The individuals found responsible should be held accountable under the appropriate sections of the law, thereby serving as a deterrent to others.
