AGARTALA, Nov 8 (TIWN): Chief Minister Biplab Deb on Thursday while addressing at Netaji Subhas Vidyaniketan H.S. School asked 48,780 teachers across Tripura to take 6 classes per day, if they are given with 6 classes by the authority. Chief Minister was addressing at the annual prize distribution programme of Netaji Subhas Vidyaniketan H.S. School by drawing teachers attention towards Quality Education, so that Tripura youths can perform best at National level. Strangely, when quality education is hoped from the teachers, BJP Govt is expecting teachers should take 5 to 6 classes per day, which "Practically" never possible according to teaching methodology and quality education norms. CM said, "I am not blaming anybody but corruption doesn't only confined with only the money-embezzlement but corruption acts from the mind itself. "We have to change our work culture and develop the mind with positive outset. If 6 classes are given to you but you are taking only 3 classes, it is too a corruption", CM said.

CM also stressed upon the quality education, which he claimed is "lacking" heavily schoolwide. Biplab Deb further said, "Tripura's literacy rate is 97% but unfortunately at national level competition, Tripura youths hardly can perform. Huge numbers of candidates are selected for central jobs per year through UPSC from UP, Bihar where literacy rate is less than Tripura, but being efficient in literacy rate Tripura youths can not perform well, which is really matter of being upset". 

Earlier State Govt has announced that 25 classes per day is mendatory i.e. per day around 5-6 classes. It was first announced by Law Minister Ratan lal Nath on September 27 after cabinet had decided on that.

It was also mentioned that each teacher will take care of selected 20 students of his / her school so that all students get proper education and teachers' attentions.Tripura has 7,29,177 students whereas 48,780 teachers are there and out of them 40,647 are only Govt teachers.

However, when 6 classes have been demanded from teachers per day, saying not taking more classes is a corruption, what about BJP's corruption when it placed Jumla-Commission instead of Pay-Commission ? What about abolishing of 5 years fixed-pay-system ? Such questions are being raised already.
