Contents of ‘Patthalgadi’ to be changed

Villagers of Hatudami village under Murhi panchayat in Khunti district have decided during a gram panchayat to change the contents of stone plaques with the ‘right information’. Currently, the stone plaques, which were put by some ‘Patthalgadi’ supporters a few months ago after misguiding the locals, have wrong interpretation of the Constitution.

Gram Pradhan Dashrath Kacchap, along with other villagers, has given written information to Sub-Divisional Officer Pranav Kumar Paul that they came to a decision that the present form of ‘Patthalgadi’ was against the traditional culture of tribals. People were misguided by ‘Patthalgadi’ supporters to deprive the original beneficiaries of the government’s welfare schemes.

Photos of teachers on notice board

To check incidents of teachers deputing their substitutes at the government schools in rural areas, every school in Jharkhand has been asked to write name, address and mobile number of all the teachers in bold letters and also to put their photographs on the notice board.

Moreover, if a teacher does not reach school without any prior information, both students and other teachers can him/her easily.
