Teachers will not benefit much from the protest, says Tripura Education Minister

“The Supreme Court has rejected the state government’s proposal of giving any kind of special treatment for the 10,323 retrenched teachers apart from age relaxation,” Tripura Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath told reporters.

AGARTALA: Tripura Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath, on Monday, urged the protesting teachers to withdraw their agitation and to prepare for government job interviews as the “terminated” teachers will not benefit much from the protest.

“The Supreme Court has rejected the state government’s proposal of giving any kind of special treatment for the 10,323 retrenched teachers apart from age relaxation,” he told reporters.

He, however, said that the state government is sympathetic towards the 10,323 teachers.

Meanwhile, former education minister Tapan Chakraborty on Monday said that they had met the Chief Minister on December 23, 2020, and demanded the state government to hold talks with the agitating teachers.

“Government should talk with them and finalise the problem. This is very cold now, and during this extreme weather the sacked teachers are sitting along the roadside for the last 35 days,” Chakraborty said.

He also said that the former left front government had created 13,000 new posts to address the problem and that they had completed the interview process.

“The present government should recruit this terminated teachers on those posts,” Chakraborty said.
