THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Raju Narayanaswamy, General Education Department secretary, has been shunted out because he recommended strong action against Vocational Higher Secondary Education Director Mohan Abraham.

Recently, Swamy identified a financial fraud and sought the explanation of the VHSE director.

Mohan Abraham submitted a voucher claiming Rs 5 lakh as the payment made to ASCII-Hyderabad towards the fees of training imparted to Higher Secondary teachers.

When the Secretary verified the information, he was shocked to see that no training was conducted in association with the ASCII. Mohan Abraham had allotted Rs 5 lakh each in the last five years for the same training.

As the director had failed to submit any explanation, Swamy recommended his suspension.

In another case, Swamy recommended disciplinary action against Mohan Abraham as the director refused to submit the details sought by the Assembly sub-committee on the welfare of women and children.

In a Supreme Court case regarding the appointment of a physically challenged person in the department, the state was fined for failing to provide the information sought by the court.

As the director was not ready to submit the information even after getting a snub from the SC, disciplinary action was recommended against him.

Mohan Abraham was accused of misleading the government in the case of General Foundation Course (GFC) teachers in VHSE.

He unilaterally approached the PSC to appoint GFC teachers, who need to teach only less than 6 hours per week, without any government decision.

As a result of that, the GFC teachers were also given the salary of junior teachers causing huge financial liability to the government.

Sources said that Baby had personally asked Raju Narayanaswamy to revise these files and acquit Mohan Abraham, the other day.

Mohan Abraham is eyeing Civil Service and any adverse mention against him in the official files would do harm to him in the process.

Swamy said a firm ‘No’ to the proposal and within hours received the ‘reward’ for that. He was booted out of the General Education Department.
