Aizawl: To spread awareness on AIDS and measures to fight the deadly disease Mizoram’s apex and most influential student body, Mizo Zirlai Pawl (MZP), and Mizoram State Aids Control Society (MSACS) will jointly launch campaign on AIDS across the state.
President of MZP B Vanlaltana called on health minister Dr R Lalthanglianaat in his office in Aizawl to discuss the growing spread of AIDS and measures to fight the disease.
According to sources, the student body also asked the state government to immediately implement a rule to regulate transfer and posting of teachers across the state.
The meeting of MZP executive committee on Wednesday observed that many schools are facing teacher crunch due to the absence of proper teacher transfer and posting rule, according to Vanlaltana.
He said that many teachers in urban area refused to go to rural areas and hired substitute teachers, which in turn jeopardized student’s career.
The meeting asked the state government to expedite the implementation of “The Mizoram Education (transfer and posting of school education teachers) Amendment Rules, 2020,” which was approved by the state cabinet on January 17, he said.
The amendment rules, which seeks to curb proxy teachers and ensure that teachers serve at their respective posting, will be tabled in the state assembly during the upcoming budget session to be held from February 17 to March 14.
The MZP would also launch large scale inspection on government schools in the state.
Vanlaltana said that the executive committee meeting on Thursday observed that students in the state were deprived of certain facilities availed by other pupils in different parts of the country.
“We will carry out mass inspection of schools to study and ascertain the condition of students and teachers all over the state,” he said.
The MZP meeting also decided to observe ‘Zoram Ni,” anniversary of the alleged aerial bombing of Aizawl by the Indian Air Force, on March 5.
It also decided to hold federal council sitting on April 3.
