Prayagraj, May 20 (TNA) The Allahabad High Court has asked the Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary Durga Shankar Mishra on why so many cases are pending in the education department Skilled and competent officers should be posted at the place of work, who can take decisions expeditiously, the court said.

Expressing displeasure over the work being done by the officers of the Education Department, the Allahabad High Court has made this strong comment.
