However, SN Janardhanan JACT-GEO State EC member said, “The visit was subsequent to the Collector being petitioned by the school PTA, which had some misunderstanding with Vasanth. He had produced 90% results and was not present due to health reasons. Also he was tending to his father suffering from kidney failure.” Department sources revealed that this was not an isolated case as there were some teachers in the district who in the guise of undertaking association work rarely come for teaching. A case in point is a primary school teacher at VGR Nagar in Gandhinagar abutting Katpadi, who rarely comes to classes and has even appointed a person in his behalf. When the issue was raised with the Vellore CEO S Mars, the latter assured action but sources revealed that the teacher’s identity was known to all department top officials.
