Bathinda, November 23
Members of different teachers’ unions conducted a meeting to chalk out future course of action for the agitation on regularisation and transfer policy, at Teachers’ Home on Friday.
Representatives of the unions discussed that despite carrying out protests many times recently, the state government’s stance did not change.
Talking to Bathinda Tribune, Resham Singh, president of the democratic teachers’ front, said, “We have been protesting to put forward our demands in front of the Education Department and state government, but the latter have chosen to ignore our demands. The struggle for our demands has reached a saturation point and now it is like a do or die situation for us. We have decided that a state-level protest with other union members would be held at Patiala on December 2.”
Singh added, “The indifference of the government will not be tolerated. The Education Minister has cancelled the meeting with Sanjha Adhyapak Morcha representatives. The reason cited by the minister is that the teachers did not lift dharnas. But the government or department needs to understand the point that why the dharnas were staged at the first place.”
Members of the 5178 Master Cadre Union, Sanjha Adhypak Morha, SSA/RMSA and other teachers’ unions were present at the meeting.
Singh said, “We vehemently oppose the government’s decision to regularise the jobs of SSA/RMSA teachers by imposing 75 per cent pay cut. The transfer policy adopted by the Education Department is irrational. Those recruited under the 5178 master cadre and computer teachers must be given regular jobs and all benefits of government employees.” — TNS
