The indefinite hunger strike which has been on for over 9 days for absorption of ad-hoc teachers has been put off for now.
DUTA has called for another shutdown on 17th & 18th January this week.A protest rally at MHRD and a ‘Sansad Gherao’ is being planned.The teachers are also planning to write to Members of Parliament to seek their help in fulfilment of their demands.
“During these 9 days, we have been able to establish our issue more profoundly at various forums. Issue was widely covered in different regional and national print and electronic media. Our teams reached to different ministers including Minister of state MHRD, leaders of ruling party and opposition parties. Hunger strike is adjourned but we are not taking the break. We shall approach to top leadership of ruling party to help resolve our issue.
We appreciate the huge support lent by our colleagues who regularly joined the dharna place out of their busy schedule in the chilling cold. We want to assure you all that we shall further intensify our fight with renewed energy and with different modes of protest. We request you to turn up in large numbers in these action programs.Your support and collective efforts will certainly take this movement to its logical end.” said DUTA in a Press Release.
