Mr. Sambaraju Balakishen Rao has been appointed President of the State Upadhyaya Satta, a Lok Satta affiliate. He is the headmaster a school teacher in Shadnagar mandal of Mahbubnagar district.

The State Working Committee of the Upadhyaya Satta, which met here today, effected the change following the appointment of the incumbent, Prof. Vijayakumar, as Mahbubnagar District Education Officer.

Mr. M. Sattibabu, General Secretary, presided over the meeting.

Addressing the Working Committee, Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan said the Upadhyaya Satta should distinguish itself from other teachers’ organizations which hit the roads frequently on sectional demands. It should take up a program to strengthen education in the Government sector to earn respect for the teacher and ensure a bright future for students and the country. He wanted teachers to make the Right to Education Act, Sarva Sikhsha Abhiyan and Rajiv Madhyamik Siksha Abhiyan a success. He instanced how the American society revolves round education by pointing out that people mention the local school as a reference point for their address.
