Early Times Report
Jammu, Feb 17: Amid Opposition's allegations of deliberate attempts by the Government to dilute the transparency institutions of the state while claiming high moral ground on war against corruption, a whistle blower is being subjected to acute harassment by his department for raising voice against corrupt practices of his superiors.
A complaint was filed by Dalbir Singh Jamwal, Lecturer Govt. higher secondary school Khour before the State Vigilance Organisation Vide No: VO-Edu-G-195/15-20584-85 dated 30.12.2015 against Govind Ram Sharma, Principal, Govt. HSS Narrari Bala (Akhnoor) for misusing his official position as a government official.
According to the complaint, the accused principal provided undue benefit to a female private student appearing in class 11th T1 & T2 examination in 2014 in exchange for hefty sum of money. The SVO subsequently forwarded the application to then Commissioner/Secretary School Education to enquire into matter and submit report. The CS Education in turn forwarded the said complaint to Director School Education Jammu to enquire into the irregularities and submit report. Then DSE Jammu forwarded the same to Monitoring cell within her office.
The said enquiry was entrusted to Vinod Gupta, a principal posted in the monitoring cell, who alleged connived with accused Govind Ram Sharma and submitted a false and manipulated enquiry report to CS Education that a two member enquiry committee comprising of two principals was constituted and it had found that the complaint was frivolous and devoid of any merit. Subsequently, on this report then CS Education , Shaleen Kabra under rule 33 of the J&K Civil services (Classification, Control and Appeal) Rules,1956 issued memorandum to the lecturer for filing a false complaint against his senior officer.
Interestingly, the lecturer who was in charge of the 11th class exams in HSS Narrari Bala had caught principal Govind Ram Sharma red handed while taking two answer sheets of chemistry paper to the house of a female private candidate and got it re written after the examination was over.
Sources in the education department allege that Vinod Gupta, principal who now has now been transferred to DIET samba as HOD, while his posting in monitoring cell made fortunes handling complaints/corruption cases against various officials of education department and giving them clean chits in exchange.
Pushed to the wall by the nexus of corrupt, the complainant approached the State Vigilance Commission for pursuing corruption charges against the accused principal Govind Ram Sharma. Following hearings in the Commission it was established that no enquiry was constituted by the DSE and Vinod Gupta had submitted an old report against the complainant.
Ironically, while both the accused principals, namely Govind Ram Sharma and Vinod Gupta remain unharmed, the whistle blower who stood up against patronizing unfair means in the examination by the principal himself is facing harassment and insult.
