IMPHAL, March 26: The JAC of All Manipur Hill District Contract Basis Teachers Association (JAC-AMHDCBTA) staged a sit-in-protest today at Keishampat Junction against the non-regularization of the teachers who were appointed on contract basis in the year 2006.
Speaking to media persons, JAC member Thuikamang said that the State Directorate of Education (S) appointed teachers on contract basis in the year 2006 to fill up the vacant post of teachers in the hill districts.
However, Government of Manipur and ATSUM signed a MoU in the same year to appoint the posts filled up on regular basis through normal recruitment or special drive but the government did not responded until 2010.
All of a sudden, in November 2011, Directorate of Education (S) conducted physical verification to match with relevant documents for service extension and regularization, he said.
However, out of 1332 contract teachers of hill districts only 772 were accepted as genuine by the concerned Director and Principal Secretary of Education (S) but till today the government has not announce any development regarding the matter, he said.
He maintained that many memorandums have been submitted to the Chief Minister, concerned Minister and to the Director appealing to consider the matter but the government or the concerned authorities have not shown any positive sign.
He warned the government that if their issue is further neglected then they will start launching more intense forms of agitation.
He also appealed not to start the recruitment process of SSA and RMSA until their issues are solved.
