“We demand that the funds for the examinations of 5th and 8th grades should be deposited in the open account rather than secret fund of the BISE Swat,” they said and offered volunteer services to conduct the examinations.

The office-bearers of the council questioned establishing of the secret fund from which the chairman board could spend money according to his wish and without audit.

“PTI came into power with the slogan to eradicate corruption from the country. The government must initiate independent inquiry into the secret fund and mismanagement in the affairs of BISE Swat,” they said.

They also accused the top officials of the board of nepotism and said that they benefited only few employees and neglected majority of them.

“The key officials of the board also invite female teachers from other districts and keep them in the board’s guest house for checking papers,” they said.

BISE Swat chairman Prof Tasbeehullah, when contacted, said that all the activities of the board were carried out according to rules and regulations. He said that the top officials of the board had taken strict measures to curb corruption.

He said that legal action would be taken against the employees, who participated in the meeting during duty hours.
