JIRIBAM, Nov 4: Volunteers of the four students’ bodies of Jiribam – AMSU, district committee; MSF special branch; DESAM local council and KSA, Jiribam unit have locked offices in Jiribam today in protest against government inaction in meeting their demands.
The Zonal Education Office (ZEO), Jiribam, DIC, BDO, PWD, ICDS, FCI and Jiribam Municipal Council offices were shut down by the students’ groups.
It may be reminded that on October 25 last, representatives of four student bodies of Jiribam met authorities of the education department in the office chamber of the concerned minister, M Okendro wherein the students were assured by the minister himself to look into their demands.
Later on November 18, after a series of agitation from the students’ bodies, the department of Education (s) released an official notification regarding order of posting for 31 teachers in the sub-division.
Meanwhile, only two of the 31 teachers have joined their respective posting places at Jiribam till date, resulting in the students bodies renewing their series of agitation.
The students bodies had some days back announced that unless the teachers of the newly posted in the sub-division turn up at their respective posting places by December 3, the students bodies will resume their agitation from Wednesday.
