Tribal Sahitya Sabha demands re-advertisement on TET teachers
BY OUR STAFF REPORTER
GUWAHATI, Sept 16: The Convening Committee of Indigenous Tribal Sahitya Sabha, Assam (CCITSSA) on Thursday demanded Chief Minister’s intervention for cancellation of an advertisement on appointment of TET teachers on permanent basis.
In a memorandum submitted to the CM, the CCITSSA alleged that there were several anomalies in the advertisement published on August 31 where Directorate of Primary Education sought online applications for 6134 posts in primary schools and 5144 posts in upper primary schools.
“We have requested the Chief Minister to cancel the advertisement as there was no post reserved for ST (Plains). Districts such as Dhemaji, Dibrugarh, Golaghat, Jorhat, Goalpara, Kamrup, Lakhimpur and Sonitpur have a large section of TET teachers who belong to ST (Plain). It was really unfortute that the advertisement did not mention any reservation for ST (Plains),” CCITSSA chief convener Kamala Kanta Mushahary told media persons after submitting the memorandum to the CM. He further criticised the state Government for failing to appoint language teachers. “The CCITSSA has repeatedly demanded appointment of teachers for several tribal languages including Bodo, Rabha, Karbi, Tiwa, Missing and others. However, the Government has not paid any heed to our request so far thus violating Right to Education (RTE) Act, 2009 and article 350 (A) of Indian Constitution,” Mushahary stated.
“The CM has assured us of all possible action at the earliest,” the chief convener concluded.
