While decided to implement National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) syllabus letter and spirit including the school times, Tripura government malls an idea to close down about a hundred schools from next academic session. The proposal was mooted after the government received the feedback that in some interior locations, schools have been running with equal number of students and teachers but having a huge infrastructure, maximum parts of those were left unused over the years. Tripura built more than 5000 school buildings and number of schools has become double in last 10 years that increased the demand for teachers and other staffs. Over the year, Education Department of Tripura has appeared to be the biggest sector of government employment in past decade. Though there was specific eligibility criteria laid down for recruitment of teachers in the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009, Tripura government did not follow it till 2012. There was a horizontal expansion of education in Tripura not by improving quality but in terms of infrastructure, buildings, recruitment of teaching staffs and recapitulating the strategy to narrow down, drop outs at school level.

Mizoram began to experience Electoral politics with the formation of Mizo Union (MU) as the first political party on 9th April, 1946 and it was followed by the formation of another political party known as United Mizo Freedom Organisation (UMFO) in the next year on 5th July, 1947. Mizoram since 1948 has no poll related violence. As a matter of fact, security forces are employed only for performance of official duty. While killing, violence, rigging and many unfair practices are common in elections in other states of India in general and the neighbouring states in particular, all those unfair and evil practices are unknown totally in Mizoram. One of the reasons for continuous conduct of free and fair poll is due to influence of church and good Christian teaching.

There is quite a lot of excitement in Assam, especially in the Brahmaputra valley for the past few months following the ongoing protest rallies against one major and sensitive issue concerning the indigenous people in the State, the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016.  The indigenous people have been opposing to this Bill ever since it was introduced in the Parliament on July 19, 2016. Why? They are apprehensive that if the Bill is passed in the Parliament, they will not only lose their language, culture but will also be reduced to a minority in their own land.

There is no denial that Human Rights defenders who challenge big corporations are being killed, assaulted, harassed and suppressed in growing numbers every year. North East India, in particular, is the most volatile region where human rights violations have taken a serious proportion. One such example can be exempted from the recent attack on two women activists, the incident, which shook the humanity and the entire Northeast. It can be compared to the heinous crime of mob lynching, attacked by approx or more than 40 people against the activists, who were on the mission to burst the racket of coal mafia encircling the entire Jaintia Hills in Meghalaya.
