Dimapur, April 21 (EMN): The Yimchunger community’s apex students’ organisation will be undertaking what it called “extensive inspection tour” within the Yimchunger areas. The Yimchungrü Akherü Arihako (YAA) issued a press release on Sunday offering details about the group’s planned programme.
The union explained that the ‘tour’ aimed to ‘foster quality education and to ensure quality workmanship within the Yimchungrü’s territory.’

The YAA, the frontal students’ organization of the Yimchungrü tribe will be conducting an ‘extensive inspection tour’ with the theme “Reaching out to revamp,” the updates stated.

This has been necessitated to assess the overall developmental activities, lapses in various welfare funds by the state and central schemes and to check the ‘regularities’ of teachers, the press release read.

The organisation said it has taken serious note of the prevailing poor performance of schools. The YAA has “resolved to show ‘zero tolerance’ towards proxy/substitute teachers and shall strictly enforce ‘no work, no pay’ policy on teachers who are found absent without prior permissions from the authorities.”

Substitute teachers
The union listed out a number of conditions in regard to engaging teachers on substitution.
“In case of study leave granted by the department, the substitute teacher should be arranged as per the directive of the department. Such arrangement should be made in advance with an official communication to the SMC with a copy to the concerned students’ union,” the press release stated.

“In this regard, all federating units are directed to ensure that the composition and functioning of SMC are in sync with the Communitisation Act handbook/guidelines.”

Further, the union stated, the federating units “being the stakeholders” are asked to report to the YAA “in the event of any lapses detected in MDM (mid-day meal), uniform, textbook and other related issues pertaining to students’ welfare for onward submission to the concerned department.”

Transfer, posting of govt. employees
The union stated to have noted “the rampant transfer and posting of government employees thereby, causing undue hardships to both the employee and the public.”

There have been instances that government employees were ‘transferred out without the later reliever either through political favoritism or due to some extraneous consideration.’

From now the YAA shall strictly monitor and “shall not hesitate to forward those erring employees to the concerned department for appropriate action,” the union stated.

Construction firms and contractors too are asked to start working right.
Contractors and firms operating in the Yimchunger territory are asked to “ensure ‘quality workmanship’ and to complete the work within the stipulated time.” The YAA shall “remain vigilant and assure to extend all possible support and cooperation to the contractors/firms for work execution as per the specification/DPR.”

Should there be any lapse that is found on the part of the contractors or firms, the YAA shall not hesitate to ‘blacklist’ them, the press release declared.

The union said to be aware of poor infrastructure and inadequate staffs in various health units. Many poor patients from the rural areas are deprived off their fair share to access to basic health amenities, the press release stated.
“In this regard, the concerned department is requested to up-grade the existing health units and to deploy adequate staffs. To this end, the YAA shall interact and collect detail information from various departments during the inspection period,” the organisation stated.

Government employees posted at various towns and villages in the YAA’s jurisdiction “should remain in station for data collection,” the group stated further.

“In this connection, YAA seek co-operation from all the stakeholders including the government employees for the fulfilment of the mission,” the press release added.
