Even after several assurances from the State Government, the jobs of these teachers are yet to be regularised.

Biswajit Chetri, working president of the Santha said, “If the Government fails to regularize our jobs within two days then we will hold protests across the State from March 1.”

“We will also boycott the upcoming Assam Assembly elections,” Chetri added.
