Panchkula, July 9

Protesting at the open grounds behind the HAFED corporate office at Sector 5 for over a fortnight, vocational teachers of the state have decided to hold a protest march towards the residence of the Chief Minister on Wednesday. The teachers are demanding regularisation of their jobs and increments.

The protesting teachers have been in the city since June 24. The teachers said they teach 18 subjects, including tourism, IT, security, physical education, media, fashion, and electricians, among others, to students in classes 9 to 12. They said they are paid about Rs 33,000 per month.

Union president Anoop Dhillon said the 1,959 teachers have been working under the Haryana Kushal Rojgar Nigam (HKRN) since 2014. He said the state had hired 147 other vocational teachers who are doing the same jobs; however, they are being paid Rs 57,000 per month.

He said, “As a mark of protest, we carried out a cleanliness drive on city roads and cleaned the shoes of passersby to present the dismal state that our state government is in, but to no avail. We have held several meetings with Education Department officials; however, they have not conceded to our demands.”

He said the protesting vocational teachers would carry out a protest march towards the CM residence on Wednesday.
