Jalandhar, July 18

Serving in the government schools across the state as education providers under the Alternate Inclusive Education (AIE) and other schemes since 2003, members of the Temporary Teachers Union gheraoed the car of Jalandhar West Congress MLA Sushil Rinku on Saturday.

The incident took place near his house at Basti Danishmandan. The protesting members led by Harpreet Kaur said the Congress came to power after assuring them that their services would be regularised and that they would get wages on a par with the regular teachers working in schools. As Rinku came out of his car, teachers presented him a memorandum in which they mentioned that Punjab CM Capt Amarinder Singh should accept their demands or else they would hold a massive protest in association with other unions on July 21 at Mohali.

The members, including Kuldeep Singh, Taranvir Singh, Sumit Kaushal, Varinder and Sandeep Sandhu demanded their issue to be taken up in the next Cabinet meeting of the state government.
