Sangrur, December 1

Government teachers from various districts of Punjab today organised a state-level rally, under the banner of the Democratic Teachers’ Front (DTF), here.

The teachers accused the government of taking anti-employee decisions.

The teachers first organised a rally at the local BSNL Park and then marched till Nankiana Chowk.

“The Punjab Government is not providing basic amenities in government schools. Under the name of smart schools, the government is promoting privatisation of government schools and it will ultimately make education out of reach of the poor,” alleged Devinder Singh Punia, state president of the DTF.

The demands include regularisation of teachers of meritorious schools and non-teaching staff on full salaries, funds to provide facilities to pre-primary classes, six teachers in each middle school, withdrawal of salary deduction of teachers, head teacher posts in all primary schools and recruitment for all vacant posts across the state.

Members of other organisations, including the SSA, RMSA Teachers’ Union, TET and BEd Pass Union, TET and ETT Pass Union, also took part in the protest.

“Unemployed BEd and TET pass youngsters have been protesting in Sangrur since September 4, but the government is not serious. We will intensify our agitation in coming days, if the government fails to take required steps,” said Sukhwinder Dhilwan, president of BEd and TET Pass Unemployed Union.

Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla, who is in Sangrur, said he had forwarded all demands of the teachers to the Cabinet.

“During the Cabinet meeting on Monday, the government will discuss all demands of teachers. I have called teachers for a meeting on December 3,” said Singla.
