Teachers to move SHC against education dept

HYDERABAD, Aug 20: The Hyderabad chapter of the Government Secondary Teachers Association (GSTA) has decided to file a writ petition in the Supreme Court against delay in teachers' promotions, appointments on political grounds, non-payment of difference in salaries and appointment of junior and ex-cadre officers in the education department.

The GSTA's general body meeting presided over by Zamir Khan took the decision on Saturday and observed that the teachers of Hyderabad district had been deprived of promotions for two years despite the fact that the posts had been lying vacant.

The meeting pointed out that even the junior teachers of new districts had become senior to the senior teachers of Hyderabad district on technical grounds. Similarly, they were also not being paid difference in their salaries for four years, the meeting said.

The meeting said that lists of people who would be appointed on political grounds had already been prepared and the newspapers were full of stories about a 50-50 quota.

The meeting said that the department was denying quota in jobs for the teachers' children on the pretext of merit while at the same time it was trampling upon the principle of merit in making appointments on political grounds.

The meeting criticised the appointment of educational officers in Hyderabad in flagrant violation of merit and argued that first the officers belonged to ex-cadre and the second they were juniors. Besides, some officers with bad reputation had also been appointed in Hyderabad, added the meeting.

The meeting said that the association has sent letters to the concerned authorities from time to time to inform them of the problems but they had little effect. Under these circumstances, the meeting decided to file a writ petition in the Supreme Court by the end of current month to seek justice, the meeting said. Dawn
