Integrated Farmers Association (IFA) today denounced the inclusion of a non-Manipuri in the Rashtriya Madhyamik Abhiyan eligible list of Manipur Education Department. The association said in a statement that Dr Taiyabur Rehman, an Assamese was found included in the recent RMSA eligible list of the state Education Department. The association further said that they cannot accept such policy of the state Government. It also asked whether we lack any appropriate candidate for RMSA here in Manipur.
The association based in Mojing Leitanpok of Thoubal district also expressed their desire of selecting only those candidates who were brought up on the soil of Manipur. The Manipur Government has been recruiting school teachers on the basis of marks obtained by candidates in their academic records as a new policy since this year.
