HAILAKANDI, July 20 - The Hailakandi unit of All Assam Students� Union (AASU) has demanded exclusion of political leaders from school management committees, besides resenting their interference in the formation of the committees.
A delegation of the AASU met the Deputy Commissioner recently and handed over a memorandum in this connection.
In the memorandum, the AASU alleged that certain head teachers of some schools in Hailakandi district are forming committees secretly under the behest of political leaders and MLAs. The students� body therefore urged the DC to instruct the heads of the institutions to convene open public meetings in order to form managing committee of the schools.
They AASU claimed that by forming school managing committees by involving politically motivated persons, the concerned head teachers were polluting the academic atmosphere of the said schools. They also sought the intervention of the Deputy Commissioner in this regard.
Significantly, the AASU threatened to launch a mass democratic movement against this practise if the political leaders and their followers are not excluded from the school managing committees.
The AASU delegation comprised of advisor Naharujjaman Choudhury, president Amjad Hussain Laskar and general secretary Surajit Sarma Mazumdar, among others.
