AGARTALA, November 29 (TIWN): Reacting sharply to Tripura School Education Minister Tapan Chakraborty’s statement that the MHRD has granted a one-time relaxation to the state over Teachers Eligibility Test (TET), Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) working president Ashish Saha said the state government is trying to confuse job-seekers on the issue. They are trying to take advantage of the situation. The Ministry has not given any special relaxation to Tripura over TET, he claimed.

Talking to the media on Saturday here at Congress Bhawan, TPCC Working President Ashish Saha alleged, CPI-M has launched an agitation against the former Tripura Congress chief Sudip Roy barman because of his demand to Union human resource minister Kapil Sibal that the Teacher's Eligibility Test (TET) be held in the state as per the Right to Education Act to ensure quality education here.The present opposition leader Sudip Roy Barman on May 30, 2012 had written to the NHRD demanding for a TET examination and quality education here in Tripura. Since after the the ruling left front govt. had played a very double standard politics with the letter written to the NHRD, claimed Ashish Saha.

Mr. Saha also alleged that the state government knew very well that without the TET, no teachers can be recruited for Classes I-VIII. But they are still acting in their own political interest. They conducted interviews in 2002, 2006 and 2009 but did not give a single job to anyone despite sufficient posts being vacant The State education department had earlier demanded relaxation of TET and recruitment of trained teachers with 50 per cent marks in February last following the controversy over the recruitment initiative of the state government without any test. However, the MHRD did not agree with the proposal of the state government and suggested the government to hold TET for the eligible candidates as holding TET has been made mandatory under the Right to Education Act (REA).
