Teachers burn Vijay Inder Singla’s effigy

Bathinda, May 24

Teachers under the banner of the Democratic Teachers’ Front (DTF) staged a protest and burnt the effigy of Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla in Bathinda after the latter allegedly cancelled a scheduled meeting with them to discuss and find a solution to their demands. Firstly, the meeting was scheduled for May 3 and later it was postponed to May 15, but it could not take place.

Navcharanpreet Kaur, state committee member, DTF, said, “There is resentment among teachers as meetings with higher officials and the Education Minister were first fixed to discuss and resolve our problems, but when the scheduled day approached, these meetings were cancelled on a number of occasions. Amid rising Covid cases, teachers are being asked to conduct door-to-door drive and convince parents to get their wards admitted to government schools.” — TNS
