Jamshedpur, Aug 7: In spite of three teachers posted to compile syllabus and ensure teaching of Maithili to students, the irresponsible attitude of these three persons have resulted in at least one student’s missing out on a BA Degree. This allegation has been cast by Pramod Kumar Mishra who was to have appeared in the BA examinations for the sessions 1992-’95 from ABM College with Maithili as the language.
Mishra has written to the Jharkhand Governor and in his complaint has pointed out that at the period in question, the College was under Ranchi University which was letter shifted under Kolhan University. He stated in the letter that during the first year of his BA course he was given a paper comprising 50 marks for Non Hindi students and the main paper of 100 for students whose language medium was Maithili. He mentioned that he passed his Part-I exams while writing his answers in the language.
Pramod Kumar Mishra, in his letter to the Jharkhand Governor and Chancellor of state universities, accused the three posted teachers specifically for Maithili language, of arrogance that led to Ranchi University not being provided question papers and consequently the Part II and Part III examinations could not be held and he could not qualify and get his BA Degree. He accused one of the permanent teachers of the subject SN Mehta had now retired and was on government pension.
Mishra further mentioned that neither the other two teachers, Dr Ravindra Chowdhary and Dr Ashok Kumar Jha have, in 25 years been able to compile a syllabus for Maithili language teaching. He complained that whenever he narrated his predicament to them they blamed it on the government on the pretext that even though Maithili along with Santali had been included in the Eight Schedule of the Constitution the state government was not paying any heed to the teaching-learning process in Maithili.
Pramod Kumar Mishra urged the Jharkhand Governor and Chancellor to consider his predicament and direct the authorities concerned to judge his merit on the average of his Part I marks for Parts II and III markings so that he is able to obtain his BA Degree (Pass Course).
