The man is fighting for the past 9 years to guard the education sector from corruption. As per Mr. Chaterjee’s words,”They are taking a minimum amount of 2 lac rupees in the name of donation. NCERT books are not provided. They sell other books because of the revenue they make out of it.”
He accused the state educational system and said,” We have the most inefficient educational system of all.” He also mentioned that a complaint was launched against these activities before in the DI office, but no further action was taken. He quoted the Indian constitution and said that,” As per Section 32(1), if a complaint is submitted in a SDO/D.I. office, immediate actions should be taken and report should be filed.”
