DMK president M.Okay. Stalin on Saturday urged Chief Minister Edappadi Okay. Palaniswami to take utmost care to ensure the safety of students of Classes X to XII and academics who would attend colleges (on a voluntary foundation) from October 1.
He mentioned the federal government couldn’t afford to stay detached on the bottom that the students have been within the lessons with the consent of their dad and mom.
In an announcement, he mentioned after saying its determination to open colleges for the students of Classes X, XI and XII, the assertion of the School Education Minister that the Health Minister would determine on permitting academics above 50 years to attend colleges had prompted confusion amongst dad and mom and academics.
“It gives an impression that the government has not taken seriously the safety of students. The announcement that students would be offered only guidance and they should bring a letter of consent from the parents exposed the government’s motive to pass the buck,” he alleged.
Mr. Stalin mentioned there was a doubt that the School Education Minister was not conscious of the federal government order to reopen the faculties.
“His argument that the Health Minister would decide on who among the teachers should be involved and the Chief Minister would finalise the decision on reducing the syllabus was a clear indication of lack of coordination among various departments,” the DMK chief mentioned.
In one other assertion, Mr. Stalin on Saturday mentioned it was extremely condemnable that Chief Minister Edappadi Okay. Palaniswami had not raised his voice in opposition to the Centre, which had used ₹47,272 crore meant for compensating States affected by the implementation of the GST.
“The Chief Minister is maintaining silence even after the CAG, in its report, had pointed out about the use of the compensation cess for other purposes,” he mentioned within the assertion.
Mr. Stalin mentioned the State governments had agreed to GST amendments because the Centre made a sovereign assure and subsequently adopted it of their Assemblies. “When Tamil Nadu decided to adopt a resolution, I suggested it be sent to a select committee. But the government claimed that it had the guarantee from the Centre. Now, the BJP government has thrown to the winds its promise.”
He mentioned no Central authorities prior to now had dedicated an act that will absolutely dilute the federal construction of the nation and monetary autonomy of the State governments.
