Tripura: Terminated teachers protest for regularisation of jobs
Members of the Joint Movement Committee (JMC) of 10,323 teachers, who were terminated over faulty recruitment in 2014, staged a protest at Agartala on Saturday demanding their jobs back.
“The ruling government in its vision manifesto had assured to protect the livelihood of affected teachers. Our jobs were terminated when a court held the state’s employment policy illegal in 2017,” said Dipankar Debbarm, a protestor. The protestors have threatened to head for large-scale protest if the government did not meet their demands.
It may be noted that 10,323 school teachers in postgraduate, graduate and undergraduate posts were inducted in different phases since 2010 but in 2014, the Tripura High Court terminated a total of 10,323 school teachers terming the recruitment as “unconstitutional”.
