The All Nagaland Aggrieved Graduate Teachers’ Union, (ANAGTU) Zunheboto Unit has unanimously decided to stand in solidarity with the representation submitted by ANAGTU to the gvernment of Nagaland. In a press release note Kasheto G/T, President, and Tokhuvi G/T, Secretary,
ANAGTU (Zbto Unit) stated that the voice of ANAGTU was in fact representative of each unit and therefore “reiterate to the government of Nagaland to hear the plea of the ad hoc graduate teachers (AGTs) and make timely regularization.”
Making its standpoint clear, the unit pointed out that the AGTs have been giving all-out effort, energy, dignity and devotion in their vocation as evident in the progress of students in recent years which the esteemed Education Department could also testify.
The unit said the lackadaisical attitude of the government of Nagaland pertaining to regularization of AGTs spoke volume of its insincerity towards the student community as well as teachers.
ANAGTU Zunheboto unit also pointed out that the government had issued a notification No. AR.5/ASS.0/98 dt. 04/08/08, in which the length of service for regularization was modified and reduced to 3 years of continuous service.
It added the modification was yet to be enforced till today and that the AGTs were repeatedly informed to submit their documents at DOSE Kohima, and after a while took back the same in person. The AGTs of Zunheboto unit urged the government to be more humane and positively respond to the representation submitted by the ANAGTU, adding it is the future of the emerging generation which is inevitably jeopardized.
Further, going by the adage “Delay of justice is injustice”, it contemplated whether the state government was subtly thriving in and harnessing injustice.
Meanwhile, the unit further informed all the AGTs under Zunheboto district whose documents have been verified by the DOSE to submit their first appointment order along with the registration fee of Rs. 200/- on or before the April, 10, 2010 and to contact the unit president and secretary at 9436427635, 9402011793, 9436427557 for more information.
