Unemployed teachers hold protests against government
Dehradun: Miffed at the casual attitude shown by the government, B.Ed (TET) unemployed diploma holders took out a rally demanding to fill posts in government schools in the state.
The protesters demanded that an advertisement for filling 6,200 posts in government schools should be issued immediately. The agitators, under the banner of the BEd (TET) Unemployed Association, gathered at Parade Ground and took out a rally, which was led by state president Manveer Rawat.
They were not allowed to go beyond Kanak Chowk as police set up barricades on Subhash Road. The protesters and policemen had a scuffle as they were not allowed to protest at the Secretariat. They sat on a dharna and raised slogans against the state government.
The protesters said government officials had given false assurance to them that their demands would be fulfilled soon. Dharmendra Bhaskar, Aradhna Semwal, Parchi, Asha and Rajeev Rana were present.
