All Nagaland Aggrieved Adhoc Teachers’ Association on Monday held demonstration near Old MLA Junction, Kohima expressing resentment against the government’s decision to extend SIT probe to look into the cases of bogus appointment of teachers. ANAATA members from all over the state participated in the agitation, holding placards and appealed for justice. During an in-house meeting on the same day, the association decided to submit a 7-day ultimatum to the chief minister for a final decision from the government. President of ANAATA, Hekiye K. Liriki said that the government should not delay the salary of the aggrieved teachers because of ‘ghost’ teachers. It also decided to demand for investigation from higher central agencies, should the probe be extended. The house also decided to picket if their demands were not met. During the agitation, the ANAATA expressed resentment that after a year long investigation, the SIT had produced a confusing report and added that it had lost its credibility. The association also said that the case should be handed to higher authorities for further investigation. Stating that the government had failed to meet the demands of the teachers, the association said that the government should resign on moral grounds if it failed to protect its employees. “We doubt the government now. We don’t feel safe anymore” the ANAATA members said. The ANAATA said that the government should prove to be a welfare state and protect its employees. Reports of the special investigation team (SIT) under the vigilance commission submitted to the government on February 26 has unearthed as many as 1,156 bogus teachers and 1,096 cases of appointments made under “doubtful circumstances”. Moreover, as many as 1,084 teachers were physically unavailable for verification
