A union of temporary government teachers, working under the Education Guarantee Scheme (EGS), Alternative and Innovation Education (AIE) and other schemes, today held a protest in the city.

The teachers gathered at the Desh Bhagat Yadgar Hall from where they marched towards the district administrative complex to hand over their memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner. The teachers led by district president Harpreet Kaur said they had been teaching under the government schemes for the past 18 years but had not been regularised yet.

The teachers, most of whom are Bed-qualified, said they were drawing only Rs6,000 a month which was too low an amount for them to meet their family needs. The teachers said state Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla had called their state leaders for talks on June 15. “We are apprehensive that these talks are just delaying tactics. If our demands are not accepted in the meeting, we will intensify the stir. Through our memorandum, we have come to convey our message to the minister through the Deputy Commissioner,” said Harpreet.
