Manipur chief minister O. Ibobi Singh is likely to face another uprising of employees in the near future as Joint Administrative Council (JAC), the apex body of government employees, has served a 10-day ultimatum to translate into work the agreed demands of the employees.
A meeting of the JAC resolved to launch indefinite “cease-work” strike if the government failed to translate the demands of teachers and pensioners within 10 days time, JAC spokesperson L Priyobarta said. He claimed that the meeting held yesterday reviewed the “fast unto death” stir of government teachers under Council of Teachers’ Associations (COTA), the yet to be translated agreed demands of pensioners and non-completion of pay anomalies.
Meanwhile, 31 more teachers on “fast unto death” stir were arrested by police on the charge of committing suicide, the total of number teachers in jail has rose to 227. On the other hand, college teachers who were waiting for government’s reply to an ultimatum served by the Federation of College Teachers’ Association, Manipur (FECTAM) today announced that they would boycott the Education Commissioner of Manipur government, Mosses Challai.
FECTAM convener M Lokendro, in a statement, alleged the commissioner of not submitting a report called by the Chief Minister’s secretariat regarding the demand put forward by the association.
He said that Chief Minister’s secretariat, on December 8, 2010, called a report from the commissioner with regard to the demand of the FECTAM, adoption of UGC pay scales to the college teachers. But he failed to submit the same till date.
