Warangal Urban: Telangana All Private School Teachers Association (TAPTA) State founder president Chandarlal Naik Chouhan demanded the State government that it should deposit Rs 1.20 lakh (Rs 10,000 per month for 12 months) in each private teacher’s account since the teachers were suffering financially a lot due to closure of the schools following the Covid-19 pandemic.
Addressing a ‘Maha Sankalpa Deeksha’ being organised at the Ekashila Park by the private teachers here on Sunday, Chouhan said that the teachers, who are also graduate voters, would teach a lesson to the ruling TRS in the MLC election if it failed to address the demands of the private teachers. Expressing solidarity with the agitating private teachers, Congress party Warangal Urban and Rural districts president Naini Rajender Reddy also demanded that the TRS government take immediate steps to provide relief to the private teachers by depositing Rs 1.20 lakh in each teacher’s bank account.
“Teaching and non-teaching staff working in private, schools and colleges have been facing severe difficulties since the announcement of the lock-down due to Covid-19. The State government has not taken any steps to mitigate the problem, while the school managements are making profits,” he alleged and added that the private school the owners’ associations should also help the teachers.
TAPTA Women President Sujatha, State Vice President V Mukundam, State Convenors S Raju, CH Prakash, State Chief Advisors Suryaprakash, State Committee Member Christopher, Warangal Urban President Naresh, Babu Ramesh, District General Secretary Prasad, and others attend the Deeksha.
