IMPHAL, Oct 18 - Manipur BJP President Th Chaoba has demanded a probe into the scandal pertaining to recruitment of some 1,423 primary school teachers which was recently cancelled by High Court of Manipur.
Speaking to mediapersons at the State BJP office here on Friday, Chaoba slammed the Congress Government headed by O Ibobi Singh for maintaining silence on the teacher recruitment scandal.
He demanded the Government initiate a probe into the scandal. The primary teachers were recruited in 2011. Chaoba alleged that the teacher recruitment scandal has exposed the corrupt practices of the State Government.
The government should first spell out the circumstances leading to the cancellation of the teacher recruitment order and order a probe into it, Chaoba demanded.
On October 6, the High Court of Manipur quashed the order issued by the State Government for recruitment of the primary teachers.
