Youth body demands adequate recruitment of teachers to meet crisis

The ‘Bangali Yuva Samaj’ – a youth body of the state on Monday alleged an acute crisis of teachers in different government schools across the state and demanded the government to initiate the process of adequate recruitment to meet the crisis for the welfare of the students.

Addressing a press conference here at Agartala on Monday, the state secretary of the youth body Goutam Deb demanded the government to clear the pending recruitment process for aspirants selected for viva tests under the JRBT. The viva test was supposed to be held on January 17, but it was suspended due to the enforcement of the model of conduct for the recently concluded assembly election.

The youth body however gave an ultimatum of one months to the government to wind up the recruitment process and hand over the offer letters with the selected aspirants at the earliest.

On the other hand, the youth body also pressed for other series of demands with the government, which includes – early declaration of TET examination results, to stop switching over the Bengali medium schools into English medium in the name of Mission Vidyajyoti scheme, to sanction adequate budget for the mid-day meal scheme, and 5000 jobs in a year as was promised by the government in 2018 last.

The state secretary of the youth body Gautam Deb alleged that the quality of education system has come down as the government is not being able to recruit quality teachers under the Mission Vidyajyoti scheme.

He however threatened the government with mass movement if the government fails to meet the demands of the youth body.
