Tura, Feb 1: Contesting that the leaking of the MTET paper has hampered a lot of genuine people desperate for a teaching job, the Anti Corruption and Human Development Organization (ACHDO) has called for a CBI led inquiry into the matter.
The MTET papers were leaked prior to the beginning of the exams yesterday with a lawyer from the Shillong High Court filing an FIR in this regard at the Tura police station yesterday. Following the leak an investigation into the incident is currently underway with a cyber expert being called in for a breakthrough in the case.
“MTET was the greatest opportunity for genuine, poor and needy candidates as the selection of the teacher recruitment will be independent and based on talent .We were immensely glad and thankful to the NPP led MDA government for the opportunity but now that has come to waste,” said ACHDO president, Ishraful Hoque.
The NGO stated that the leak has broken back of honest and genuine candidates with all candidates now asking for a reexamination. “There needs to be complete security in the process going forward,” added the NGO.
“We are really shocked, desperate and ashamed over the security system of education department which has raised many questions. This leak is akin to the Education Scam. We wonder as to why there has been any official announcement on the matter. Who will take responsibility for this mess,” asked the NGO.
The NGO thus demanded a CBI led inquiry into the matter as well as announcement of dates for the reexamination.
“Those involved should be arrested and the source of the leak needs to be determined,” they added.
