NPYC extends solidarity to ANATG teachers

Nagaland Pradesh Youth Congress (NPYC) has extended solidarity and declared all-out support to All Nagaland Ad hoc Teachers’ Group’s (ANATG) 2015 batch demand for regularisation of services of its 1,166 members.
NPYC president Limayangba Lemtur said it was disheartening to learn that despite having appeared the suitability test conducted by the Department of School Education (DoSE) as per norms for service regularisation in 2017, DoSE had neither declared the results nor regularised their services to date, which had compelled them to resort to sit-in protest and hunger strike since September 26 here.
When the department had declared that these 1,166 ad hoc teachers were not illegal appointees but were given irregular appointments, NPYC insisted that all measures should be taken immediately to help them get regularised.
With the final exams of schools in the offing, NPYC pointed out that the agitation was hampering the academic career of thousands of younger generation for want of course completion throughout the State. While the government of the day and the department had been citing reasons of standing court order for their inability to regularise the services of ad hoc teachers, NPYC alleged that it was an open secret that many departments had been regularising the services of their ad hoc employees.
While appreciating the dialogue between ANATG and DoSE officials where chief secretary announced to form High Powered Committee (HPC), NPYC, however, said it was sceptical about the long duration of a year for HPC to study their case.
NPYC appealed to the government and DoSE to take the issue of service regularisation of the ad hoc teachers with utmost importance and urgently defuse the matter so that the agitating teaches could go back to the respective places of posting and impart quality education to the younger generation.
