ITANAGAR | May 20 | The All Papum Pare District Students’ Union (APPDSU), in a memorandum to union school education & literacy secretary, has rejected two district annual work plan (DAWP) & budget for Papum Pare district under newly ISSE programme.
Enclosing official orders, it said that (No. D-AR/RMSA-17/2008(Pt-I) of 23.01.17 of state’s education secretary clearly indicating that in absence of GoAP gazette notification for Capital Complex district, separate DAWP and budget for integrated RMSA 2018 will not be prepared and plan for its catchment area should be integrated under Papum Pare district. This supersedes 11.01.07 order [No.SEDN 208180(PT-II)].
Capital Complex DC 16.05.18 response, in to plea under RTI, clearly proved there was no gazette notification for the district and Papum Pare DC is chairman of district level management & monitoring committees of all central schemes, including of Capital Complex district, whereas Capital Complex DC is not chairman of any committee.
Capital Complex district was created by GoAP in 2008 for tackling law & order only but the DC was later delegated with other powers equivalent to his Papum Pare counterpart without proper gazette notification, the sole reason for all chaos & confusion prevailing in Papum Pare district and why separate DAWP for Capital Complex was not granted by GoI since 2008.
However, the above said education secretary requesting for separate DAWP & budget for Capital Complex was to misguide the MoHRD under pressure of with vested political interest, the letter alleged and urged MoHRD not to accept two separate DAWP & B for one district.
