JKRTTF demands justice to family of deceased ReT teacher
Baramulla:Teachers under the banner of Jammu and Kashmir Rehbar-e-Taleem Teachers Forum (JKRTTF) district Baramulla on Thursday staged a protest demonstration in the premises of mini-secretariat Baramulla demanding immediate regularization order and release of pending salary in favour of Rehbar-e-Taleem (ReT) teacher Mohammad Muneer of Zone Boniyar who died of cancer.
Protestors assembled in Kriyap Park and later marched towards the office of Chief Education Officer Baramulla carrying banners and placards.
The protestors raised slogans against Director School Education Kashmir and concern authorities for not issuing the regularization in favor of the deceased teacher whose family suffered a lot as the sole bread earner was battling cancer.
“ The file of the deceased teacher Mohammad Muneer has been lying on the table of OSD DSEK but those at the helm of affairs hardly bother about the plight of teachers and their families. We want justice to the victim family,” said District President Jammu and Kashmir Rehbar-e-Taleem Teachers Forum (JKRTTF), Mohammad Yaqoob Bhat.
He added that Muneer joined the department as Educational Volunteer (EV) in 2005. He gave his precious years of life to the education department and remained punctual to his duties with a meager salary of Rs 1000. Later, the government converted all EVs as ReTs and Muneer got converted in 2013. Now his regularization was due in 2018 as RRT but the file is facing redtapsim and eats dust in DSEK and his salary is withheld from last one year.
Another protestor Zonal President Boniyar Shahnawaz Ahmad, “We want his salary and other arrears our slain teacher to be released immediately as the family has suffered a lot financially.”
The protesting teachers also demand immediate clearance of in-situ promotion ‘Time Bond’ files, regularization of RETs, the transaction of pending RRTs into Grade II, Grade-III and pending salary of the teachers.
The JKRTTF has demanded immediate intervention of the concerned officers to speed up the process of regularization and issue the regularization order in favor of the deceased teacher so that his family gets benefitted under SRO 43.
