Bathinda, November 16

Teachers under the banner of the Democratic Teachers’ Front gheraoed the District Education Officer’s office alleging pressure on them to ensure maximum attendance and results under the Punjab Assessment Survey (PAS) online exams.

The protesters also sought reinstatement of the services of a teacher who was suspended while serving at Government Middle School, Jalal village, in June. The gherao of the office complex continued for three hours.

Resham Singh of the front said: “We have submitted a memorandum to the Chief Minister via the DEO requesting the department officials not to pressure teachers to ensure maximum attendance and results under the PAS exams.” — TNS
