"UPSC hasn't moved files yet": AAP MLA Atishi over NCPCR's letter on recruitment

New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Atishi Marlena Singh on Wednesday said the state government has requested Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) several times regarding the recruitment of principles but the later has not moved the files yet. The AAP MLA remarked on NCPCR letter to Delhi government over “only one-fifth of schools have principals”. 

“We’ve made several requests for recruitment of principles but UPSC hasn’t moved the files yet. We urged NCPCR to inspect schools of Delhi and other states too,” says AAP MLA.  

This came after the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) wrote a letter to Delhi Chief Secretary Vijay Dev enquiring about the conditions of government schools in the national capital including bad infrastructure and vacant post of heads. The NCPCR said schools are creating gender disparity as the girls are being taught stitching. 

NCPCR chief Priyank Kanoongo said, “After visiting several schools, we noticed the post of head of school (HoS) in many of them was vacant. We have warned govt to present their factual position on this.”

Kanoongo further said, “The infrastructure of Delhi government schools is not good. We found buildings where teaching could be dangerous for the lives of students. For vocational training, girls are only taught stitching, creating gender disparity. People are more dependent on private schools.”

The commission has directed the government to take necessary measures due to the seriousness of the issue. It has sought a report on the same within a week.
