 Education Minister P K Abdu Rabb has said that he suspects a conspiracy behind the controversy over the green blouse circular and said that a detailed inquiry would be conducted into the matter.

 The Minister told mediapersons here on Tuesday that his department had no information about the circular directing teachers to wear green blouse during a function in Ernakulam, which triggered the controversy.

 He said that the controversies related to the Education Department were a deliberate attempt by certain quarters to tarnish the image of the Minister and the party.

 “Such controversies have just 24-hour life,” he said.

 Regarding the Higher Secondary seats, he said that a decision would be taken on increasing the number of seats after July 6.

 There were around 109 panchayats without higher secondary schools and attempts would be made to begin a higher secondary wing in at least one school in these panchayats.

 The government would conduct detailed discussions on the High Court directive to close down the engineering colleges with a pass percentage below 40 per cent.

 He said that the government had stopped giving NOC to new engineering colleges.
