Bhubaneswar: Odisha School & Mass Education Department Minister Samir Ranjan Dash today paid a surprise visit to the office of the Block Education Officer (BEO) at Unit-8 here.
During the minister’s visit, absence of some officials during the office hours came to fore. Dash has directed to issue show-cause notice to the absentees over their non-presence at the office.
The minister also directed the BEO not to ask school teachers to come to the office during study hours after he found several teachers in the office during his visit.
“Active and effective educational system is the objective of the State Government, for which supervision is necessary. The role of BEOs and ABEOs is very important in this regard. I advised the officials to be dedicated towards their work,” said Dash.
