Departmental probe ordered in teacherís appointment in Left rule

The Trinamool Congress government on Tuesday announced a departmental inquiry into the spending of Central funds on sanitation projects under the Panchayat Department during the Left Front regime.

A probe has also been announced into the recruitment of teachers in Madhyamik Siksha Kendra (MSK) and Sishu Siksha Kendra (SSK) that were made during the Left rule. The government's move is considered to be an attempt to mount pressure on Leader of the Opposition Surya Kanta Mishra and his deputy Anisur Rehman who were former panchayat ministers.

The government suspects that CPM cadres were recruited in the unapproved MSKs and SSKs and the recruitment process violated the standing norms. The state government spends annually Rs 55 crore as salaries on the MSKs and SSKs, the rest is given from Central funds.
