Panchayat College Bargarh faces staff crunch

Following report is from The Pioneer:

Like any other college of western Odisha, the only Government college of Bargarh district, Panchayat College, located at Bargarh district headquarters town, also suffers from staff shortage leading to fall in education standard. There are a few departments which run without teachers.

The college has got 60 and 26 sanctioned posts in various departments for +3 and +2 wings, respectively, having Arts, Science and Commerce streams. But only 25 lecturers in +3 and 17 lecturers in +2 classes are available now and the rest of the posts are lying vacant since long in spite of repeated request from the students, guardians and senior citizens to fill them up, sources said. This has also led to students’ agitations in the past. At the same time, the college doesn’t have a permanent principal of its own over a decade now.

Situation is more precarious in important departments like Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Zoology and English. The departments of Mathematics and Zoology have got one teacher each, college sources confirmed. Situation for the non-teaching staff is also in no way better. Out of total 82 non-teaching staff, 41 remain vacant — exactly 50 per cent of the strength.

“Not only have I requested the Higher Education Minister and the Secretary a number of times to fill up these posts with immediate effect, I have also raised the issue in the floor of the Assembly, but to no effect,” said MLA of Bargarh Sadhu Charan Nepak. This shows the attitude of the Government to the problems of the students and higher education as a whole in this backward region, Nepak alleged.

“I am also well aware of the problem in this only Government college of the district. But my hands are also tight. I can only ventilate the sentiment of the people to the Government,” said Bargarh District Collector BG Mishra.

    Why not Sadhu Nepak ask his Congress Govt. sitting at Centre to pressurize the ruling party of Odisha ?

    HE could ask the central education ministry and get the work done ….
