Ccpur school headmaster accused of instigating stir

CORRESPONDENT CCPUR, 26th Oct: Pamjal JBS headmaster namely Vanlalzawma Khiangte has been served show-cause notice to explain his position on the charge of abetting public unrest in Churachandpur town.

The notice issued by the chief executive officer (CEO) of Autonomous District Council, Churachandpur, while referring to a specific resolution adopted during the executive meeting held on October 23, questioned why disciplinary action should not be initiated against Vanlalzawma, a resident of Salem Veng for his alleged physical involvement in the demonstration.

The said resolution also resolved that disciplinary action should be initiated against any employee involved in agitation, joining or inciting any protest against the activities of the government under the ADC.

‘In this regard, the CEO/ADC is directed to find out such employees, especially in the present agitation initiated by YMA/Lamka branch and that other department staff engaged in similar activities shall be brought to the notice to the deputy commissioner, Churachandpur for initiating action as per CCS Conduct Rules, 1964’, mentioned a copy of the meeting proceeding/resolution possessed by The People’s Chronicle.

In the show-cause notice, Vanlalzawma, in-spite of being headmaster of a school functioning under the ADC has been accused of taking part in the demonstration staged against the government
move for evicting office of YMA Lamka branch in addition to instigating ‘his association (YMA Lamka branch) in his capacity as its president for staging the demonstration’.

The notice said that YMA activists under his leadership have been staging protests at New Bazar Bus waiting shed area since October 21 by mobilising the public.

It further mentioned that his action totally violates CCS (conduct rules) 1964 and is unbecoming of a respected headmaster of a government school, which subsequently amounts to a serious matter that entails befitting action.

Vanlalzawma has been asked to submit his explanation on or before 1 pm of October 28.
