“The controversy that has stated from 2nd of August has clear motives to tarnish my image especially when election is around the corner” – member Meghalaya Legislative Assembly Sanbor Shullai.

It all started when the MLA interfered in army recruitment process on the night of 2nd August. 

“My motive of interfering in the accommodation for the job aspirants was that to provide free accommodation on humanitarian grounds since it falls under my constituency and also to prevent any scuffles between the locals and the job aspirants coming from outside the state.”

Sanbor claimed that that the manager of the guest house has already taken Rs. 500 from each aspirant who has travelled far away from their home, hence it his duty to him as a public servants to provide them free of course accommodation.

Meanwhile Mrs Haviva also accused Sanbor Shullai of forcefully snatching away the contract paper from her brother (Mickey Passah brother of Haviva, the lessee of the guest house).

On the 4th August Mrs. Haviva accompanied by another lady and her brother forcefully barge into the MLA house when an official meeting was underway and hurled abuse at the MLA. Despite being told by all the people presence inside and outside the MLA house the company did not pay heed until the interference of the MLA’s wife and daughter. Sanbor alleged that Mrs Haviva threatened to file a false complain to the police before leaving his premise.

Post this incident Mrs Haviva file a case against the MLA alleged him of outraging her modesty claiming that she was pushed which result in minor cut on her upper lip.

He also reminds the press that such allegations against him are not new. Similarly on 22nd October 2012 just 4 month before the State Assembly Election an FIR was launched against him by the Seng Khasi Raid Laban on the grounds that he has misused the sacred flag of the union but the court overturned in his favour claiming the case against his are baseless.

The Assam Valley School Story- what went wrong?

Learning in today’s time is really complex. When all round development is of essence and not just marks, the education system has a collective responsibility to ensure that in the quest for excellence and discipline, the innocence of a child is not lost.

On the fateful day of 6th July, the lives of three children in a very reputed school of Upper Assam changed forever. The Assam Valley School which has brought from its ranks achievers in almost every part of the sphere was left in a deafening silence. The three student’s one the victim and the other two alleged perpetrators. While there was general public outrage that the thirteen year old boy Rahul Modi(name changed to protect the identity), student of class 7, had to undergo serious medical procedures(Jaw Surgery at Nemcare Hospital, Bhangagarh in Guwahati and two Titanium Plates were fixed), it got more complicated with time as people forgot that the other two boys were only 14 years old.

Why SC says no to yoga as compulsory subject in school?

The Supreme Court disagree with a petition filed by a bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta to make Yoga compulsory in schools claiming that it was for the Centre to take a call on such issues. The Court clearly remind the jury that "RTE Act does not specifically mention about the curriculum of yoga hence it should only be an integral part of the curriculum of 'Health and Physical Education' in which schools affiliated with CBSE and who adopted NCERT curriculum and syllabus ‘Health and Physical Education' have already enforced from Class 1 to 10 and optional at Classes 11 and 12.

 

The Centre also clarified that majority of schools were under the control of States and Union Territories. Hence, it is the duty of the states and union territories to ensure that schools should followed the provisions of the NCF (National Curriculum Framework), under which yoga is only an integral part of 'Health and Physical Education' at all levels of school education.
