Action to be taken against wayward headmaster: Education Minister S Rajen

Action will also be taken up against those private schools authorities by cancelling recognition if found violating government orders, the minister said.


Manipur Education Minister S Rajen Singh on Wednesday announced that appropriate action will be taken against the headmaster of Singa Upper Primary School for not complying with the state government’s order during the pandemic.

A report of conducting coaching classes in Upper Primary School, Singa in Thoubal District has been found to be circulated through local dailies on Wednesday, Rajen told the media at his residence at Salam.

A student organisation, while conducting a surprise visit after receiving complaints in this regard, found conducting coaching classes in this school, he added.

“We are at a very critical period because of COVID-19 pandemic. Our priority at this juncture is to save lives. It is very unfortunate if any individual or official disrespects the order of the government during this pandemic hour,” he said.

He said that the director of Education (S) has been instructed to take up appropriate action against such government officials. Action will also be taken up against those private schools authorities by cancelling recognition if found violating government orders, he added.
