WBSSC chairman resigns amid recruitment irregularities row

Amid row over irregularities in reclamation in the West Bengal School Service Commission (WBSSC), its president Siddhartha Majumdar on Wednesday abnegated from his position.

Kolkata, May 18 (IANS) Amid row over irregularities in reclamation in the West Bengal School Service Commission (WBSSC), its president Siddhartha Majumdar on Wednesday abnegated from his position.
His abdication was encouraged to the state education clerk, Manish Jain on Wednesday evening at a time when the former state education minister and the Trinamool Congress clerk general, Partha Chatterjee was facing the grilling of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officers pertaining to the reclamation fiddle.

Majumdar’s unforeseen abdication on Wednesday evening came significant on two counts. His abdication has come just a day after he appeared at Calcutta High Court in a case pertaining to the illegal appointment of West Bengal minister of state for education, Paresh Chandra Adhikari’s son, Ankita Adhikari as a advanced-secondary political wisdom schoolteacher in a state- run academy.
It was contended that Ankita Adhikari was appointed indeed without qualifying in the merit list and appearing for the personality test.

Secondly, his abdication has come just within four months after he assumed the president.
Majumdar, an adjunct professor of Kolkata- grounded City College, was appointed as the WBSSC president in January this time by the current West Bengal Education Minister, Bratya Basu.

Although Majumdar refused to speak to the media on this issue, state education department sources verified his abdication.
Sources also said that following the massive difficulties over the WBSSC reclamation swindles, the state education department might now place an Indian Administrative Service officer in the president of WBSSC president.
