GUWAHATI: The All Assam Sanyogi Siksha Karmi Union (AASSKU) has threatened self-immolation in front of Raj Bhawan on December 21, 2020 if the State Education department doesn't advertise for holding the special TET (Teachers' Eligibility Test) by December 14.
In a statement issued to the media on Monday, the Union said, "The TET-empowered Committee took the decision to hold the special TET at its meeting on December 3, 2020. However, now they say that it is not possible to hold the special TET before March, 2021. If the central TET and the TET for higher secondary schools can be held in January, why not the special TET be held by that time? We, therefore, demand the publication of the advertisement for the special TET by December 14, 2020.
"If that's not done, we'll take out a Kahilipara Challo programme on December 14, 2020. If the government continues lend a deaf ear to our demand, we'll stage a Raj Bhawan Challo programme on December 21, 2020 and resort to self-immolation."
