People affiliated to RSS are arranging for the appointment of their own workers and supporters in the schools and colleges of Uttar Pradesh which are aided by the government funds and are faking government orders to implement their plans. An FIR has been registered against 11 persons when the matter came into light.
For these appointments, it is alleged that fake government orders were prepared and funds were misappropriated.
These cases of appointing more than two dozen teachers and other staff officials in Sanskrit colleges and middle schools of the state on the basis of fake documents come close on the heels of the appointment of incompetent candidates in Banaras Hindu Vishwavidyalaya (BHU) and Sampoornand Sanskrit Vishwavidyalaya. A case of fraud has been registered against a dozen persons including two former journalists. They have been accused of preparing fake government orders and embezzlement of money.
The accused include a stenographer in the office of district school inspector of Sonbhadra and eight assistant teachers of Robertsganj Sanskrit Middle School and National Sanskrit Middle School of Taravan.
The FIR mentions names of the people associated with Hindu Yuva Vahini and the BJP. If we go by the available documents, it is clear that an influential worker of the Kashi unit of RSS is behind this fraud who himself arranged for his own appointment as a lecturer in the Robertsganj Sanskrit College through unfair means.
According to the FIR registered in Robertsganj Kotwali, the district school inspector Raj Shekhar Singh wrote a letter to the inspector in charge of the kotwali. In the letter, he alleged that then district school inspector Prabhuram Chouhan (now a lecturer in the institute of educationand training, Orraiya), stenographer Atul Shrivastav, accountant Ashok Kumar, manager of Robersganj Sanskrit Middle School and the manager of National Sanskrit Middle School Taravan, Sonbhadra, together with the teachers appointed with the help of fake documents, had prepared fake government orders and took salaries on the basis of these documents. He also asked for registration of a formal FIR against them in the letter.
The letter clearly mentions the names of the assistant teachers who were appointed illegally. On February 17, the managers of these schools wrote to the district school inspector for releasing salaries to these illegally appointed assistant teachers.
On March 17, the then school inspector, Prabhuram Chouhan, had sent a report to the joint secretary of Uttar Pradesh government in this regard, but the report’s reference number is missing from the dispatch lists of both the schools.
Acting on this letter of the present district school inspector, the Robersganj Kotwali has registered a case against 12 persons under section 419, 420 468 and 461 of the IPC. Inspector Raj Narayan Yadav has been assigned to conduct an inquiry into the matter.
According to the sources accused junior clerk Manoj Chaturvedi’s brother is a BJP worker. Another accused assistant teacher Kaushalendra Pandey and Manoj Chaturvedi are former journalists. Kaushalendra has been associated with Dainik Jagaran, Hindustan and Amar Ujala. And Manoj Chaturvedi used to work as a stringer for News24 in Sonbhadra. Some of the other accused are also reportedly related to either RSS or Hindu Yuva Vahini workers.
If sources are to believed, then influential worker of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s Kashi unit and lecturer in Rabertsganj Sanskrit college Harishchandra Tripathi is involved in these unconstitutional appointments. When contacted, Harishchandra Tripathi said the entire matter will come to light when the inquiry takes place. He then handed over his mobile phone to assistant teacher Kaushalendra Pandey. Kaushalendra, introducing himself as a media person, said that he would not speak to websites.
