As many as 10,323 terminated teachers in Tripura have started an indefinite sit-in demonstration from Monday onwards.
The terminated teachers are protesting in front of the City Centre in Agartala.
The protesting teachers are being also joined by their family members.
The teachers are protesting under the banner of joint Movement Committee.
The teachers have launched the indefinite sit-in protest after the State Government failed to address their grievances in the last 2 months.
Notably, a team of terminated teachers met Chief Minister Biplab Deb two months back, who had then assured the teachers of addressing their grievances within two months.
“Mere verbal assurances will do no help now. The Chief Minister will now have to give us a written assurance that all of us will get back our jobs,” said a protesting teacher.
On Sunday evening, the terminated teachers organized a rally in Agartala city, serving an ultimatum to the State Government to fulfil its poll promise.
The agitating teachers further warned the BJP-led State Government not to take their agitation casually.
Notably, a total of 10,323 teachers were recruited by the then Left Front Government in Tripura in 2010.
Later, Supreme Court had terminated the teachers from their jobs citing faulty recruitment policy.
The BJP, however, during the Assembly elections in the State in 2018 had promised to recruit the terminated teachers again by the means of amendment in a law.
