Expressing serious concern over the plight of teachers working under Union government sponsored schemes SSA, RMSA, SBM and NPS, CPI (m) leader and MLA Kulgam Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami Sunday cautioned the government that widespread resentment was brewing up among teachers, as they have not been paid salaries for past several months.
In a statement issued here today, Tarigami said, “it is deplorable that this community has been put to sufferings and government seems least bothered about their plight. How can they work for months together without salaries, he questioned and demanded immediate release of their salaries to enable them to shoulder their family responsibilities.”
“Despite repeated reminders through deputations, demonstrations; the government has failed to evolve a mechanism wherein these teachers will get their salaries on time without any hassles,” the Communist lawmaker said.
Tarigami accused the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) for inordinate delay in releasing the funds to clear their pending dues.
The statement said that Tarigami questioned the “helplessness of the present government” to take up the issue vigorously with MHRD which has created uncertainty among the ranks of teachers working under various Union government sponsored schemes.
Tarigami stressed on “special budgetary provision” to “tackle this problem once for all”.
