Minister asks tribal welfare hostel wardens to show result

Staff Reporter

Redya Naik holds review meeting

VIJAYAWADA: Tribal Welfare Minister Redya Naik could not resist recollecting the joke – operation is a success, but the patient is dead – while reviewing the functioning of tribal welfare hostels in the district here on Sunday.

“Everyone claims that they are teaching well and giving good food.

Dropout rate

Neither the SSC pass percentage improved, nor the dropout rate came down, implying that the operation is a success, but the patient is dead,” he quipped.

Mr. Naik brushed aside the wardens’ explanation that the high schools located at far off places was the reason behind steep dropout rate in hostels. The children would not leave the hostels had the wardens provided good food and education.

The wardens had no dedication, and hence the poor results, he said.

Expressing the view that wardens hardly work despite drawing a salary not less than Rs. 15,000 per month, Mr. Naik narrated how a teacher should work.

“My teacher used to go around thanda and gather the students as the school was located at a far off place.

Nowadays, teachers do not have that dedication,” he said.

A commitment

The Minister asked the wardens to give a commitment about the results in the current academic year.

The wardens offered to forego an increment if they failed to achieve targets.

In-charge District Tribal Welfare Officer D. Madhusudhana Rao, District Assistant Tribal Welfare Officer K. Vinod Rao and others were present.
