GUWAHATI: The All Assam Eligible Recognized Upper Primary Hindi Teachers' Association staged a protest at Chachal Dharna Ground here on Tuesday demanding the Government to provincialize their posts.
The teachers' body slammed the Government for not including Hindi teachers in their move to provincialize teacher posts along with upper primary schools.
Following the protest, the protesters submitted memoranda to the Education Minister, the Chief Minister, and Elementary Education Director.
"Despite Hindi being the national language, it is disrespectful that the Government is not provincializing the Hindi teachers' posts," the body argued.
The body stressed that the post of Hindi teacher is compulsory in upper primary schools. To highlight the teachers' plight, the body has submitted complaints departmentally to address the issue. However, they lamented that no initiatives are being taken from the Government's end.
The body's president, Rohini Kumar Nath Nath appealed to the government to provincialize the Hindi teachers' posts so that their families can survive.
