ITANAGAR, The All Kra Daadi District Students’ Union (AKDDSU) has decided to enforce a 12-hour bandh in kra Daadi district on November 16 next as first phase agitation to press for fulfillment of its charter of demands.
Announcing this at Arunachal Press club (APC) in a press conference here today, AKDDSU president Pakyum Talop said the union has been compelled to go for democratic movement shutdown call as its charter of demand has not been fulfilled and evoked any positive response from the government yet.
On its demand for posting of sufficient number of teachers at Govt Higher Secondary School, Palin, he said that notwithstanding the shortage of subject teacher at Govt has transferred eight teachers in August this year at one go that and not a single reliever teacher has been posted instead, as a result of which the students’ learning process is being hampered.
While expressing discontent over the policies of state government especially the Education department, the AKDDSU demanded the Govt for immediate posting of teachers at the school and also approval of guest teachers as proposed by the DDSE Kra Daadi.
As per reports, he said, three teachers were posted by the Govt at GHSS Palin in the same month but sadly, they did not turn up to join their duties till date. “Even, we also contacted them but they are not ready to join,” he claimed while informing that “AKDDSU has decided to file an FIR against those teachers who are playing with the life of students”.
Informing about their “condition” for supporting the shifting of district headquarters from Jamin to Palin, the AKDDSU president said that state government should give one time funding for all infrastructure development of the district HQs, Palin after deciding on the infrastructures already created at Jamin by investing crores of funds.
“But, till date the state government didn’t give any response to the demand…We do not want to go seven years backward, whereas we have already wasted seven years without a proper headquarters,” he said while urging immediate action on its demand.
Further demanding immediate disposal of remaining 18 posts of MTS for Kra Daadi which are lying under APSSB, Pakyum said that if the Board fails to conduct the interview then it should give back the posts to the district administration immediately.
