Bathinda, September 29

Members of the Democratic Teachers’ Front staged a protest and gheraoed the residence of the Deputy Commissioner against the transfer order of a teacher to a village in Barnala district from Government High School, Sardargarh village, Bathinda. The union members gathered outside the district administrative complex and raised slogans against the Education Department.

Resham Singh, president of the union, said, “Kuldeep Singh was serving at the government high school for a long time and discharged his services diligently. The academic performance of students has also improved after he joined the school. Without investigating the matter properly, senior officials, acting on a complaint filed by the school head teacher, have acted against Kuldeep Singh and not only transferred him to a distant location but also put him under suspension now. The head teacher does not have cordial relations with residents and she is of the view that Kuldeep is close to them.” — TNS
