Unemployed BEd and DPE teachers, who have cleared TET, clashed with the police near Chotti Baradari on their way to the Chief Minister residence here today.
A minor scuffle broke out between the teachers and police when the former tried to march towards the CM’s residence. The teachers later burnt an effigy of CM Capt Amarinder Singh and the Education Minister near his residence.
The teachers said the government had advertised fewer posts than the eligible candidates. They demanded age relaxation since posts had been advertised after a long gap and candidates had already crossed the age limit. In fact, that had created a peculiar class of educated unemployed youths, they added.
Sukhwinder Singh, president, Unemployed BEd Teachers Union, said: “Hundreds of qualified youths are protesting on roads for jobs. It is a matter of shame for the government if they can’t provide them jobs.”
