Launching a scathing attack on Education Minister Nayeem Ahktar, opposition National Conference Friday alleged he has lost his mental balance and suggested to Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Syeed to ask him (Akhtar) for his resignation.
The party also suggested Ahktar to come out from his “childish mentality” and learn to behave like a good public servant.”
“Nayeem Ahktar has lost his mental balance. I can say he is childish and consider himself the only literate in the world. The fact is that he does not know how to deal with the problems of people. I suggest to Chief Minister to ask Ahktar for his resignation as Education Minister,” senior NC leader and former Higher Education Minister Mohammad Akbar Lone told KNS over phone.He claimed that Akhtra has no political experience. “The fact is that he has no political background. Before he joined the politics he was a government official. I feel that he badly lacks the knowledge of managing the affairs of his ministry,” Lone claimed. “He has insulted the teacher community.
When I was minister I was friendly handling things with the employees. I used the family like relations with the employees. But it is unfortunate that Ahktar is behaving like dictator with the teacher community. Though Ahktar has got degrees but he has proved himself to be an uneducated literate.”Lone claimed that Akhtar is impractical as he thinks that he can change the whole system overnight. “System cannot be changed overnight. It needs time, passion and good sense which I think Ahktar is lacking,” he said.He said if he wants to streamline the education system it is not bad “but the way he is working is not acceptable.”“How it is possible to ask the teachers to appear in the screening tests when they are doing their jobs from last 20 years,” he said and added that yes if government feels that ReT scheme is not right then they should cancel it.The statement came a day after Ahktar made it clear that the government will go ahead with the screening test. “We are going ahead with the screening test some vested interests are raising hue and cry over the issue but the fact is that whole society is backing the government’s decision,” he said.
