Cong leader demands reinstatement of temporary teachers

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Apr 16: Nadeem Sharief Secretary (publicity) Jammu and Kashmir Congress Committee (JKCC) has strongly demanded the Chief Minister and Education Minister for reinstating the temporary teachers who have been terminated from their services.
In a statement issued here, Nadeem Sharief said that termination of their services caused not only unemployment to the educated youth but also great loss to the education of students. Sharief said though these teachers have been on hunger strike for last 34 days but Government has paid no heed to their genuine demand.
Besides demanding the reinstating of terminated teachers, Sharief also demanded release of salaries of permanent ReT teachers and honorarium of ReT teachers appointed under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), who are suffering financially for last 10 months.
Condemning the lathi charge on teachers who were protesting peacefully for their right, the Congress leader said that if their genuine demands are not addressed at an earliest, Congress will also take out protest rallies against Government.
