Orders issued by the Telangana Rashtra Samithi government led by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao requiring teachers and lecturers in the state to disclose their holdings each year have sparked controversy.
In accordance with the orders, all government teachers and lecturers must submit details of their assets to their respective department heads annually.
They must also obtain prior authorization and a certificate of no objection from the government if they wish to sell or buy movable or immovable property.
The orders drew strong protests from the teaching community. They wonder how the government should harass them, just because a few teachers were involved in real estate deals.
Bharatiya Janata Party Telangana Unit Chairman Bandi Sanjay Kumar has strongly condemned the state government orders.
In a statement, Sanjay said orders requiring teachers to declare their assets every year and take a certificate of no objection from the government before selling or buying movable and immovable property only harass the teaching community.
“This is a Tuglaqian move by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao to psychologically harass teachers. He previously tortured employees on behalf of 317 GO. Now he is targeting teachers,” he said. declared.
He said it was ridiculous of the KCR government to suspect teachers, who provided education to students, as if they were amassing ill-gotten wealth.
“The government itself is not paying teachers’ salaries on time and solving their pending issues for several years. Yet he suspects they get assets every year,” he said.
Sanjay wondered why KCR came up with this crazy GO now.
“In fact, he is responsible to the people for what his and his family’s assets were before he became Chief Minister and the wealth they had amassed over the past eight years. Why don’t they disclose they not their assets every year?” He asked.
The BJP President demanded that before asking teachers to disclose their assets every year, KCR and his family members annually disclose the value of their true assets, including hidden wealth in other countries.
“Similarly, all colleagues in the Chief Minister’s office and TRS MPs should annually disclose details of their respective assets,” Sanjay demanded.
