Maya Govt. bars class XII student Qayamuddin from board exams for ‘slur’ against Maya

New Delhi: The UP Board of High School and Intermediate Education has cancelled the candidature of Qayamuddin Ansari, a class XII student in Deoria district in Eastern Uttar Pradesh, for allegedly making some derogatory remarks against Chief Minister Mayawati in his answer sheet.

Not only this, the board has barred Qayamuddin, the student of DAV Inter College, from appearing in board exams in future. The Maya Government has used all its power and did what it can to make the future and career of the student bleak just for some scribbles considered derogatory against the CM and ruling Bahujan Samaj Party chief.

According to a PTI report, in an exam in April this year the student made the ‘insulting’ remarks in the answer sheet when he was allegedly given Sanskrit question paper instead of English on the exam day. This came to light when his answer sheet was evaluated.

Besides the student, the Maya Government came down heavily on the principals and teachers of the concerned school and exam centre.

The principal of the DAV college, which was the evaluation centre, assistant controller, and two teachers have been suspended for leaking the incident to media, media reports say. Also, principal and superintendent of the exam centre and two teachers have been barred from board duties.

Only last week the UP Government sent to jail the state Congress chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi for making some derogatory remarks against the CM. Joshi’s Lucknow home was set afire by allegedly goons of the ruling party.


Autonomy key to democracy: Hamid Ansari

Autonomy is not an exceptional principle in democracy, but an essential ingredient, said Vice-President Hamid Ansari at the Kashmir University convocation on Saturday. Ansari made a distinction between assimilation of minority groups into the dominant society and their integration without erasing identity.

Police had stepped up security after a University employee was killed in a blast while making an IED 2 km from the campus.

Ansari said the Government was committed to helping Kashmiri youth so as boost the state’s economy. “There is no option but to reconstruct the economy of the state ravaged by two decades of militancy. We need to focus on creating adequate facilities for technical and vocational education, for skill upgrading and improving employability of youth,” he said.

Mohammad Manan Ansari - A Child Worker from Jharkhand to Geneva

He is no slumdog millionaire. But Mohammad Manan Ansari’s life also reads like a fairy tale. The 14-year-old boy from an obscure village in Jharkhand’s poverty-ridden Koderma district worked in the mica mines since he was eight until rescued by child rights activists.

Now, as a grand finale to his adventures, he will address a gathering at the International Labour Conference in Geneva on Friday June 12, the World Day against child labour — just reward for someone who has made the transition from child labour to child activist and rescued another eight kids from exploitation.

Working in the mica mines can be life-threatening, but Manan says the residents of his village, Samsahiriya, cling to it tenaciously. Families are large — his own has 10 members — and every paisa helps. “More than half the children of our village are engaged in mica-mining and so are their parents. The youngest are 6-7 years old,” he says.

It was tough work. Some of the minerals may be found on the surface but a good bit has to be gouged out of the bowels of the earth accessed through tunnels. Cuts, scratches and injuries from the iron implements are everyday affairs. But, inside the “khadan” (mine), if the roof of the tunnel collapses, it can cause death. And Manan says that children have died that way.

Entire families dig and sieve together but each one scouts for mica in a different area. For Manan, the hunt would begin at 10 in the morning and continue till 4 in the evening. The day’s haul would then be sold to agents, the price varying according to the quality. A kilo of ore may sell for as low as Rs 4-8 or go up till Rs 20.

NGO Bachpan Bachao Andolan’s activist Govinda Prasad Khanal convinced Manan’s parents to let him off. Manan, then 10, was first enrolled at the BBA Bal Ashram, a transit rehabilitation centre near Jaipur for a while, before moving back to his village. Having tasted a different life, he was eager to help other kids too. He managed to draw away about eight children from the mines, into classrooms. “I would visit their families repeatedly, even land up on my way to school and ask the kids to come along. I’d tell them that if they didn’t allow their kids to study, the next generation too will suffer. It took many attempts before they were convinced,” he says.

Sometime back, Manan returned to Jaipur. Back home, the closest school that offers beyond class six is 15-20 kilometres away. He has recently completed standard seven, graduating with a commendable score of 80.27%. With their son opting out, his family has had to forego the Rs 30 he made per day but they aren’t complaining. They accompanied Manan to Delhi and are thrilled about their son going to Geneva. As for Manan, he has a brand new pair of jeans and a brown T stowed away for the occasion. The boy from Koderma is ready to fly.

Shakil Ansari, a disable enters in IIT against all odds

Ranchi/Dhanbad, May 25: Physical disability could not deter him from achieving his dream — a seat in one of the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT).

Shakil Ansari (18), a physically challenged boy from the little known Dand village of Katkamsandi block in Hazaribagh district, has become a role model for several others. He has stood 51st among 170 students across India in the category of physically disabled students.

“After I passed out of Kamakhya Narayan High School, Ichak, I worked hard for over 12-14 hours every day. ,” Shakil said. He was only in Class X then. He went ahead and completed his Plus Two examinations from Ananda College in Hazaribagh in 2008 and then came to Ranchi for coaching.

Shakil cannot move around much because of polio and is happy with his achievement. “I am so happy. Despite all odds, he has done us proud,” said Shakil’s father, Md Asim Ansari, who is a shopkeeper. “We have to try and arrange the funds now.”

Now, he has to think about a suitable stream. Shakil, is confused. “Subjects like mechanical or electrical engineering may require a lot physical movement. I am thinking about IT,” said the boy, who does not own a computer at home.

'Fashion show' lands IAS officer Anis Ansari in trouble

A top officer of the Indian Administrative Service in Uttar Pradesh is in trouble for holding a fashion show at his official bungalow in Lucknow.

While Agriculture Production Commissioner Anis Ansari was given marching orders on Wednesday, his fashion designer wife Asma Hussein claimed that her husband had been targeted by an influential lobby.

"My husband was the next in line to become the chief secretary and I have reason to believe that this controversy has been created to keep him out of the race," Asma told

"I hosted a tea party on the lawns of this bungalow allotted to my husband. I fail to understand how it was misconstrued as a business promotion activity," said Asma.

Ansari was removed from the coveted job after a regional TV channel telecasted a fashion show, which was being conducted on the lawns of 4, Vikramaditya Marg, the bungalow allotted to him.

"My invitation cards also carried the title 'Victorian Tea Party' that was hosted by me in my capacity as vice president of the IAS Officers Wives Association. Even my daughters participated in the ramp show, which was a purely private affair. So where was the question of any business promotion behind it?" Asma pointed out.

A fashion designer, Asma runs a private fashion institute in Lucknow's posh Hazratganj. She has organised fashion shows earlier, but they were held in clubs, hotels or auditoriums.

While Ansari remained tight-lipped about the issue, some senior bureaucrats of the state termed the whole affair as an act of 'indiscretion' on Ansari's part. Others, however, agreed with Asma's claim that it was a private party, which could not be labeled under business promotion activities.

But members of the chief minister's secretariat were firm that the "use of official residence for commercial purpose was a violation of service conduct rules."

Asked why she had invited the media to a private party, Asma said, "I thought there was nothing wrong about media involvement since it was a Page 3 kind of affair."

Apparently, she did not realise that her party would manage to hit the headlines on page 1.
