Hundreds of teachers from Punjab, under the banner of Democratic Teachers' Front (DTF), today organised a rally in Sangrur, and sent a letter to Punjab Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla through Naib Tehsildar, Sangrur, in protest against non-fulfilment of their long-pending demands.

To protest on November 9

  • Senior leaders of the DTF said they would protest in front of the Education Secretary office in Mohali on November 9, if the government failed to meet their demands

  • They alleged that they had sent memoranda of demands in May and June, but they did not receive any reply from Punjab Education Minister or the Chief Minister

Their main demands include regularisation of services of contractual teaching and non-teaching staff, special chance for transfer to teachers posted at a long distance from their homes and promotion of teachers.

The teachers and senior leaders of the DTF gathered at the local BSNL Park, and marched towards the residence of Singla, where they raised slogans.

Senior leaders of the DTF said they would protest in front of the Education Secretary office in Mohali on November 9, if the government failed to meet their demands. "Despite our repeated requests, the state government is acting irresponsible and not taking our demands seriously," alleged Devinder Singh Punia, state president, DTF.

"The state government is making tall claims of bringing improvement in education. However, its non-seriousness towards teachers' demands has exposed that all claims are only on paper," said Raghuvir Bhawanigarh, state vice-president, DTF.
