Arts festival: Lok Ayukta recommends action against Thiruvananthapuram DEO

The Lok Ayukta has recommended strict action against the Thiruvananthapuram district education officer (DEO) for lapses in conducting the school arts festival.

Action was recommended against Suresh Babu R.S. who was the appeal committee chairman at the Thiruvananthapuram North sub-district-level school arts festival last year. Students from Government Model Girls Higher Secondary School, Pattom, had pointed out lapses in conducting the festival and filed a complaint with the Lok Ayukta against the festival organisers.

Investigation found that the complaint of the students who had competed in Oppana was not disposed of as stipulated in the arts festival manual. Disposal of complaints related to the arts festival had been turned into a farce by officials, a Lok Ayukta division bench said, directing the General Education Secretary to implement its recommendation and submit a report.
