Reacting to the agitation staged by All Nagaland Pre-Service Teachers’ Association (ANPSTA) on June 22 at Directorate of School Education Kohima, Aggrieved Teachers’ Association of Nagaland (ATAN) has condemned ANPSTA for demanding the termination of alleged “bogus” and “absentee” category teachers and to appoint them instead.
A press release issued by ATAN executives stated that association was not against ANPSTA, however it said the rights of others should not be infringed in the process of claiming demands. ATAN also made a four point statement to ANPSTA stating that PSTE was yet to be introduced in Nagaland at the time of their appointments; that there was no MOU signed between ANPSTA and the government of Nagaland for 100% employment guarantee; there were hundreds of graduates and post-graduates and some doctorates amongst them who have been “sincerely” serving the government for the past several years: and that, almost all aggrieved teachers were trained and had attended training programs with few CPTE toppers and TOT’s with classroom experience.
ATAN further urged ANPSTA to refrain from such “irrelevant demands”, but to request the government to take up its case on humanitarian ground.
