As many as 269 primary and language teachers were appointed in Hyderabad’s education department without following due procedure.
The chief minister’s coordinator for inspection and inquiries, Haji Muzaffar Shujra, revealed this on Thursday after chairing a meeting with officials of the education department.
According to him, there are 419 sanctioned posts in two categories, but the authorities hired an additional 269 teachers. He asked the officials to submit a report to the CM’s office within a week. He said that illegal appointments have also been made in other government departments in Hyderabad, mainly in the health and local government departments.
Shujra said that the government will take a decision about these appointments after compiling reports from across the province.
