GUWAHATI, April 26: Members of the All Assam Sanyogi Siksha Karmi Union (AASSKU) has raised the demand for their reappointment and to make them work as supporting teachers in class ‘Ka’ in the government schools, besides relaxing their upper age limit.

They demonstrated at Dighalipukhuripar in the city in support of their demand today. They said that as many as 10,633 teachers had been appointed as sanyogi teachers on merit basis by the government on contractual basis for 11 months from 2005-2006 by following all government rules. Their term was later extended up to March 31, 2012. They were working with a meagre honorarium of Rs 1,000-3,000 per month for two-six years. “However, without informing us, the government relieved us from service all of a sudden. We moved the government seeking our reappointment, but to no avail,” they said, and added: “In the me of positive changes the people of the State helped form a new government that took no worthwhile step towards our cause. We met the Education Minister, the Chief Minister, former Assembly Speaker Ranjit Kumar Dass and other MLAs and Ministers. We sent memorandums to 90 MLAs and four ministers on January 7 and 8 this year, but to little avail. Today we’ve submitted memorandums to the Chief Minister, the Education Minister, Education Commissioner-Secretary and the SSA Mission Director through the Guwahati Police Commissioner.”
