Tasnova Bashar of DOT
Tanvi Jhumur, second wife of lawmaker Moazzem Hossain Ratan of Sunamganj-1, has been discontinued from the post of assistant teacher of Teghoria Government Primary School of Sunamganj Sadar upazila.
The directorate of primary education (DPE) has terminated her from the job after allegations of drawing regular salary and other allowances without teaching for months ware found true against her.
Complain aroused after Tanvi, even though she was absent in the school for last 10 months, yet she received salary regularly, reports Jugantor. Tanvi jhumur is the second wife of a member of parliament from Sunamganj, Moazzem Hossen Ratan. The school authorities have informed that, 10 months ago Tanvi Jhumur took a sickness leave for one day, and she is being absent in the school since after that. Regarding the salary she is getting regularly, some members from the school unwilling to be named informed that, since she is a wife of a MP, the authorities concerned and Upazilla Education officials are reluctant to say anything against this. So, the MP’s wife is misusing this opportunity. After asking about the present location of Tanvi, they said that she is not even in Sunamganj and staying in NAM building with husband MP Ratan right now. When the principal is asked if they have taken any steps against this irregularity, then he said that they tried to contact her several times but they were unable to reach her anyhow. On the other hand, while talking with Sunamganj Sadar Primary education officer Enamur Rahim Babar, he said that – we are not aware that there is any teacher in this upazilla named as Jhumur. Meanwhile, Biplab Sarkar, Education officer of Tahirpur refused to speak regarding the regular salary of Tanvi Jhumur. On this matter, no speech from the accused primary teacher Tanvi Jhumur and husband Moazzem Hossen Ratan, MP of Sunamgaj-1 has been found.
