This man has broken all the legal barriers and has entered the field of contractors? He probably was never a sportsman but still he is getting a playground constructed!
‘We are all children coming back to the class rooms from recess with varying degrees of dirt on us. But the teacher will not scold us because we did the play in the break and got freshened up. For a child, everywhere is a playground; for an adult, it is the same, only the plays are different! For the children, had this playground been complete it would have been great as they would have been bouncing about, screaming and howling. Such a grandiose sight but for the adult in the form of the teacher it was all about earning money perhaps, obviously from the look of things!’
It’s because children absolutely love the sport.
But here it seems they still would have to wait as the same has been done by their elders for years together.
A ground was to come up in Bhera Kund in sub Division Mendhar but trust me I could not see it and my eyesight is as it should be. I mean perfectly fine.
But perhaps the administration has turned a blind corner on this man who is a Government teacher and is doing nothing but fleecing the Government exchequer.
Obviously seeing his insincerity, I think he should be facing an inquiry for many reasons (I will come to this later in the script).
What his students would have learnt from him is not sure but one thing is pretty certain and that is, he would have taught them nothing because he knew nothing except for how to gobble up funds.
Clearly an unscrupulous man who does not deserve to be a teacher.
I hope the Chief Education Officer District Poonch is reading this and would act definitely if the gentleman being the Top man in district education circuit as far as education goes is sincere to his job! Someone has to be!
Incidentally the CEO Poonch is at quite a distance from it. Had he been on the dot this fiasco would not have occurred but it has!
The kids in Mendhar love sports and this can be gauged from the fact that as and when sports events are organized by Army, Police and at times the Government, their faces brighten up. The kids love to stretch their arms and legs to excel in sports. They have the talent and also the potential to realize it but for that a sports field is a necessity. A lot many times the issue has been raised with the administration, in fact year after year but nothing has happened. Incidentally there was something happening and a teacher took the responsibility of constructing the sports field. Funds were sanctioned and probably after seeing the money his eyes popped out and he went for the grab up screamer and forgot about the playground. This is nothing but yet another corruption blast that happened in the sub division. Needless to mention not the first one and if not checked it would not be the last one either!
The ground should have come up by now had some professional taken the responsibility. But the same was given to a teacher and this is what happened:
Play ground construction had been taken by a teacher and that happened a decade back.
Since last ten years money has been drawn out from different sources after submitting fictitious bills. Where the money went no one knows.
It is alleged that last year he arranged 7.5 Lakhs grant under the state sector and a bill amounting to Rs.5.69 Lakhs was framed up by the Rural Development Department for minor works to be carried out on the ground.
It was strange that the term minor was used because the major ones had never been carried out.
If I’m correct, minor work means basically repairs. But repairs of what? Could it be for the teacher’s own house? Nothing new because the same does happen in Mendhar.
The people wanted to see the playground but nothing came up and thus the people made a representation to SDM Mendhar to check out as to what was happening on ground zero.
This they did because nothing plausible had happened and the funds had been guzzled up.
Moreover how was it possible that a government employee had been sanctioned for the work, whereas a professional contractor was required to do the job.
But unfortunately no action was taken by the administration and the teacher kept having a free run.
After he got the money he did initiate some sort of work which can be seen in the picture with the story. But it does not look like it is being done with sincerity. It could not have been because the teacher, thus far since ten years had shown no intention to convert the place into a reasonable play field.
Now the people are requesting the administration led by the Hon’ble Lt Governor to intervene and get the matter sorted out.
Children should be on the play fields is a great agenda but for that a field is a basic requirement. There is none in Mendhar though open spaces are in plenty.
The teacher has done all possible wrongs as the people allege and hence he deserves a legal action against him because he has been cheating on the government money.
I heard once that 70% of school teachers teach only in their spare time, or when they are in the mood. But this man is always in the mood of making money and finding ways and means to get on with more. He has been minting hard cash on this play ground and it’s time to nip him. Ten years is quite a long time and he has been making nothing but only the fool of the administration or he is a front man and a conduit that feeds the top men because a teacher cannot do this on his own! Just think over it!
