Alleging widespreaded corruption in the appointment of contract teachers here, the Federation for People’s Rights today demanded a CBI probe into it.
In a statement here today, Federation Secretary G Sugumaran alleged the marks obtained by several candidates were altered to accommodate those ”close” to authorities.
Mr Sugumaran cited an example of Pazhaniyammal whose marks were altered as 44.1203 from 44.6203, originally posted in the website, to accommodate one Kumudam by altering her score to 44.1817 from 43.7817.
When Pazhaniyammal approached the Director of Education, she was informed that a wrong marksheet was posted on the website and all of a sudden, the new marklist was posted.
Mr Sugumaran also said several organisations pointed out to the alleged corruption to the Director of Education.
Instead of correcting it, appointment orders were issued to the selected candidates based on the marks.
He demanded the appointment orders issued be scrapped and a re-examination conducted.
Action should be taken against the Director of Education and officials involved, failing which, the federation would organise agitation with the support of the people.
