THE MADHYAMIK Shikshak Sangh on Wednesday decided to launch a protest against the copying racket which was involved in the UP Board examinations. The Sangh alleged that those who were involved in this racket took a lot of money from the students and schools.

In a bid to register their protest against the education department officials who were not keen to take action against the schools engaged in copying racket, the teachers’ body held a demonstration outside Vidhan Bhawan.

They said that the education department officials were patronising copycats.

RP Singh, president of the Madhyamik Shikshak Sangh, led the demonstration.

They also handed over a memorandum to the Chief Minister, the education secretary and the district magistrate.

They stated that for the last several years teachers’ body had been fighting against copying but due to official apathy towards this issue, they could not uproot  this evil.

They alleged whatever the measures the education department had taken was cosmetic and demanded that officials must disclose the name of 70 in-charges who were shifted to other centers.

“Since the education department chose most of the centres after taking money from private schools, they were not in a position to initiate action against those involved in the copying racket,” a member of the Sangh said.
