ABSU ire over �neglect� of Bodo-medium schools

By Correspondent

BONGAIGAON, April 11 � �Ignoring vernacular medium education means dishonouring fundamental rights. We warn Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and his department to stop the conspiracy against Bodo-medium schools. We are an indigenous community and we are Indian citizens, so nobody can deprive us of our due rights,� said ABSU president Pramod Boro at the District ABSU office, Kajalgaon in Chirang district recently.

Addressing a press meet at the office after attending a workshop organised by Chirang district ABSU, Boro expressed his resentment against the Education Minister for alleged violation of sections under the RTE Act, 2009 in teachers� appointment.

Pointing out a number of �anomalies� in the present Education Policy made by the Education Minister, the ABSU president on behalf of his organisation put three core demands before Sarma. The demands are provincialisation of all vernacular medium elementary schools within three years as per Section 6 of the RTE Act, 2009, amendment of Section 3 of the Assam Non-provincialised Educational Institution Act, 2011 and appointment of teachers in vernacular medium schools on the basis of teaching medium by rectifying TET guidelines as per the RTE Act.

Besides, the ABSU president expressed his disgust at the Government�s alleged failure to solve the problems of Bodo-medium schools which have been neglected since 1963. He told the media that they are going to launch a vigorous agitation in favour of the demands just after or amid Rongali Bihu festival. �In our last democratic agitation, we did not get any response from the Government. Hence, our next agitation will be different but certainly democratic. The State Government will be entirely responsible for any possible untoward situation created during the agitation,� Boro warned.
