Seyochung Area Students’ Union (SASU) has served an ultimatum on government teachers under its jurisdiction, who have been absent from their duty and deployed proxies, to return to their respective schools within seven days from the date of publication of its ultimatum.

In a press release, SASU president, K Chumseli Anar, and general secretary, Holise Sangtam, cautioned that failure to return would compel the union to take its own course of action and they would be held responsible for any untoward incident. SASU asserted that the practice of proxy teachers has become a routine practice and affecting quality of education. It said those teachers were simply receiving their salary every month without performing their duty. 

Pointing out that it had on three occasions issued reminders through local media on July 16, July 29 and August 8, 2018, the union, however, said they did not pay heed to its plea. 

Further, SASU said it had sent several letters and notifications to the responsible schools but those teachers failed to perform their duty.

Meanwhile, SASU has appealed to the advisor of school education to address the issue in order to avoid course of action that may arise owing to non-fulfilment of its demand.

The union maintained that the main cause of proxy teachers in the government school within its jurisdiction was due to failure of the state government to install biometric attendance to check irregularity of teachers.
