Five of the government school principals, who have been allegedly involved with financial irregularities, are ordered to be terminated from their services by the Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia. He made it clear that by theses sackings he want to send a clear message to people who are into the practice of corruption, to stop the same in the state.
Sisodia, in a tweet said, “Have decided to remove principals of five schools from their jobs after finding evidence of financial irregularities in school-welfare fund, scholarship fund, salary and admission.” In an official statement it was mentioned that principal of Government Boys’ Senior Secondary School at Nithari has been suspended from his job, due to the allegations of irregularities of over Rs. 30 lakh from schools funds. Principal of Lajpat Nagar’s Sarvodaya School will also get termination from their services, who is alleged of giving admissions to students in class 11 on the basis of fake mark sheets.
Apart from them, three other principals of various government schools in Tughlakabad Railway Colony, Hirankudna and Jangpura areas, have been decided to hand out termination due to misuse of funds of the schools. The move will be a big blow to the principals, presently indulged in corruption and are misusing the funds received by the schools from the government. The declaration from Sisodia has come as a wakeup call for such people, who are into the process of making schools a place for business.
