Himanta Biswa Sarma takes charge as education minister of Assam

Himanta Biswa Sarma, after winning last assembly election from his constituency with huge margin of over 77000 votes, took charge as education minister of Assam while retaining health portfolio. He has also been given Assam accord implementation portfolio.

Within days of taking charge as education minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma had visited education directorate offices in Kahilipara like Higher education, elementary education etc. The video is embedded :-

The video was aired in NewsLive TV and uploaded to youtube by them.

In this video, the minister speaks in Assamese, few of his lines are translated to English :-

1. “Go and ask some one in disguise, what is the worst office in Assam, you will get reply as DPI office at Kahilipara. It has to be changed!”

2. “After director has signed some file, it has to be dispatched within 7 days, I would send guidelines at all soon.”

3. What is this cost that college lectures ( I know from my friends who are lecturers, professors) collect Rs. 5000, 10000 and then come here to pay ? I would like to know that!

4. “Who are absent, put them casual leave. Send showcase notices please who are absent without any information.”

Assam education department is considered as one of the most corrupt, inefficient department in Assam. If Himanta Biswa Sarma can change the image of education department in Assam, it would be nothing short of a miracle!

    I Liked Hemanta Biswa Sarma What ever he said most work he has done for Assam . For Education he take good Step everyone like who loves Assam development . I say something not to get change just inform you that Last News Live program , Hon’ble Hemanta Sir Said I want to Increase the percent to sit in the TET Exam , Sir, You thing this one for better Education in Assam , that we have no problem for this step ? Sir, As my thinking that If You want good Teacher then increase TET EXAM pass percent ( 60 above day to day ) not increase percent to Sit TET Exam ( I think it should be less that 50% ). If the candidate have no telnet they could not pass TET Exam . In Assam there is many family who did not give full faculty for their children to get proper Education but their children have talent. Many student cannot read at the time of Exam for their illness and got less percent , but they have talent . There are many example but if you will not give a change to prove himself what they will do . In Assam there are many Private Tution Master , They have no good percent but they much knowledge that some others good percent holder ( I am not say for all ) . It is my request sir , please think it , and find out exec lent Teacher In Assam.

    Best of Luck for this step Sir, you have taken.

    Sir, I, Dr.Pragyabati Singha a deserving candidate for the assistant professor post (sanskrit) G.C college,the interview of which was held in G.C college premises in 4th july 2011. But corruption in G.C college is now not at all tolerable. I was not selected by the authority even if i have enough qualifications to fit in the post. The following points will support my statement- 1. I had been sincerely working in the same college for the last 4-5 years.2. No other candidates were there who had doctorate degree. 3. according to the demand of the advertisement, I am under O.B.C category.4. I was a direct student of the same college from higher secondery first year to degree third year. 5. I was the only student from the Barak velley amongst the candidates.Sir so I am looking at You for the justice as you are the most inspired and genuine education minister i have ever seen and observed. I beg for the justice,and shall be very grateful to you if your goodness is kind enough to give a look at the matter happened in the colleges, there is nothing but corruption is highly speaking over education too.Alas! in what a stage India has come now.

    Dear Dr. Hemanta Biswasharma (Education Mnstr.) sir. In spite of your changing/abolishing steps to uprooting corruption from the eduation deptt. but still some of the erring officials of the Inspector of shool CDC, silchar is still involved at high level of corruption. It is very much regretted to state that, I am passing these days with financial hardship due to non receipts of any pension & other related benefits although I have retired from the service as I/c. Principal of J.R.High School, Ganirgram, Cachar, Assam on 30.04.2011. Pls. do the needful sir.

    Most of the people knows Dr. Sarma as an efficient politician. But for me he is a talent of many other qualitities.
    One of such example is that after taking the charge of Assam State Co-Operative Bank Ltd. the earlier intenal problems of the bank has been removed and the bank have made prfit for the 1st time.
    Secondly the Science and Technochnology Institute at Gorchuk which was financialy viable were taken over by the Government. This shows the foresight of the young, dynamic politician Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma.
    I wish him all success in future life.

    I , Sri Sachindra Nath Roy a Contructual Teacher of a High School have been suffering from a confusion of the future of our service. If I shall get any announcement in your site about our services then I will be glad.

  15. Hifzur Rahman says

    Respected Sir,
    While your reforming measure in the field of Higher Education is at its height there is a big scandal in connection with the appointment of the Principal of Nabinchandra College,Badarpur in the district of Karimganj which escaped your kind attention even after prior information through Speed Post Letter . My conscience again force me to inform you about the scandalous activities of one principal ship aspirant named Md.Mortuja Hussain .Briefly he superseded all kinds of corruption. Some following facts still awaited your attention and verification.
    Firstly,he has submitted Ph.D. guide-ship of CMJ University,Shillong in support of his candidature which is not recognized by the UGC. A letter has been issued from the DHE Assam regarding such type of Private Universities and their certificates vide DHE’s letter No.AHE 429/2011/196 dated Dispur the 1st February 2012.He clandestinely obtained a certificate of guideship and has not guide any research scholar so far.
    Secondly Md.Mortuja Hussain has applied for the post of Principal with some false certificates of Seminars,Workshops etc .Interestingly in most of the cases (on the days of such programme he was very much present in the college,signed attendance Register and took his allotted classes. This clearly shows his fraudulent practices .Hope you will take proper steps for verification of his certificates.
    Thirdly Thirdly, as a evidence of published work he has submitted a book with a false ISBN No.978-81-920-947-1 of 12 digits. But as per publication rule and rules of ISBN it should have 13 digits from 2007 onwards. Interestingly at the time of interview for the post of Principal of the college dated 14th January 2012 his API scoring was neither verified by the Selection Committee nor by the Governing Body.
    It is to be mentioned here that because of frequent pressure and threat the Principal i/c and Secretary Mr.Arun Kumar Sen has left the charge and md.Hussain became the Principal i/c and Secretary and thereby falsifying all the documents related to appointment. He is doing everything which the UGC rules and DHE’s circular does not permit. All these are facts are not fictious and this will invite your attention.
    Hope your fidelity will not allow your reforming process erroneous by this scandalous person Md.Mortuja Hussain.

  16. Tasmin Begum says

    Dr. Himanta Bshwa Sharma , the Hon’ble Education Minister of Assam is a true & practical Minister I ever saw in the history of Assam politics .
