ITANAGAR, Sept 15: The All Arunachal Pradesh Polytechnic Teacher Association (AAPPTA) has expressed deep resentment over the move of the education department to suspend Narendra Pramanik, associate professor of DNGC.
The association in a statement on Wednesday said suspension of a sincere and hard-working teacher has hurt the sentiments of teaching communities of the state.
“We want competent authority to immediately revoke his suspension and reinstate him with dignity and respect. This unjustified action by the administration has caused severe trauma and has affected the morale of the teachers,” the association said.
It added that the members of the association are deeply saddened by the act of Secretary APSSB and Commissioner education in this whole controversy over suspension of associate professor Pramanik.
“The whole incident has caused deep pain and anguish to the teachers who apart from performing their regular hectic academic duties, willingly discharge extra duty assigned to them by APSSB or any other government bodies from time to time. Even during the vacation and despite threats from Covid teachers have performed duty dedicatedly,” they added.
Prof Pramanik has been suspended by the education commissioner over alleged gross negligence during the APSSB exam held from 17-18 July, during which a female candidate was caught red-handed using a mobile phone inside the examination hall.
