Punjab govt orders inquiry into alleged irregularities in education deptt

Chandigarh/May 27
After huge outcry over the alleged irregularities in the education department, Punjab government on Monday ordered an independent inquiry into the issue.
Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today ordered an independent inquiry to be conducted by the retired Judge of Punjab and Haryana High Court Justice A N Jindal to probe into all alleged aspects particularly relating to the purchase of school library books for primary and upper primary, science kits and supply of map masters.
It may be recalled that the Education Minister Sikander Singh Maluka had himself offered for an independent inquiry to be ordered by the Chief Minister during a press conference here on Sunday last.
