ANPSTA slams DoSE for violation of court order

All Nagaland Pre-Service Teachers’ Association (ANPSTA) has expressed dismay at the Directorate of School Education (DoSE) for failing to heed to its demands raised in its earlier representations regarding recruitment of trained teachers through open recruitment in a “spirit of fairness and transparency”.
ANPSTA, in a statement, accused the authorities in the department of showing no concern towards its demands due to their lackadaisical attitude.
Further, ANPSTA pointed out that time and again, it had served representations calling for maintaining an equilibrium in the recruitment process of trained teachers. ANPSTA also claimed that its fight for justice had been heard by the High Court which awarded a verdict in its favour.
However, it said that as DoSE did not comply with its order, the court was compelled to proceed with serving contempt notice on the department. ANPSTA said the department then came up with a cooked story that the court order would only cause a freeze on all fresh appointments, but surprisingly the department “nullified” the court order by advertising several posts of graduate teachers for Hindi, Maths and Science.
While clarifying that it did not object to nor was against such advertisement or appointment, ANPSTA however questioned DoSE which court order prevented it from advertising the existing posts of primary teachers as no post had been advertised to date?
It also asked whether the court order to freeze all fresh appointments was applicable only for primary teachers and therefore, demanded that the department make public its response.
