Kendrapada, Aug 4 (UNI) The Kendrapada district magistrate has ordered an inquiry into the allegations of two Bangladesh infiltrators slapped with Quit India Notice serving as teachers in the district.
Sources said the Bangladeshis, who were issued the Quit India notice in January 2005 under Foreigner's Act, 1948, were now serving as para-teachers in two government run primary schools in Mahakalapada block after obtaining appointment orders from the authority.
They have joined as teachers despite the fact that their fate was yet to be decided as to whether they would reside in the state or to be deported to their native place in Bangladesh.
Acting on the allegations of the locals, Kendrapada District Magistrate Sisirkanta Panda has directed an inquiry by the local tahasildar into the alleged administrative error.
According to official sources, one Laxmirani Mistry, the wife of Praffula Mistry, a Bangladeshi national residing at Ramanagar village under Mahakalapada block, is now serving as a teacher in the Ramanagar Primary School.
Laxmidhar Misty along with her family members had been slapped Quit India notice((No-597)on January 15,2005.
Similarly,another Gouranga Vaidya, also a Bangladesh infiltrator served with Quit India notice (No-1055), was appointed as a full time teacher in Luna-gheri Primary School.
As per the guidelines both the two foreign nationals are not legitimated to get the jobs in India as one has to submit his/her residential proof along with the application.
It was irony that how could the two Bangladeshi nationals had obtained residential certificates from the local administration despite the fact that they were waiting to be deported to their native place.
Local people also alleged several Bangladeshi immigrants served with Quit India notice were enjoying the government benefits like Indira Awas Yojana, BPL list, APL list, Antodaya and Annapurna Yojana by enrolling their names in the voter lists.
As many as 1551 Bangladeshi immigrants, who had come to the seaside villages after December 16,1971 and residing in the coastal pockets of Mahakalpada block, have been slapped with Quit India notice to leave the country.
