Agartala : By Our Correspondent
Members of All Tripura Deprived Unemployed Association today held a meeting at BT College Ground to decide their future course of action. The newly-floated association has decided to represent in the Supreme Court, said Tanmoy Nath this evening.
“We will represent in the Supreme Court in connection with the Special Leave Petition posted for September 12 next. A hefty amount is needed. We are working on it”, Nath claimed. He alleged that the induction process adopted by state government categorically deprived all trained unemployed youths while regulations prescribed in the Right to Education Act clearly mandates teachers training as an eligibility criteria for applicants to be considered in the recruitment process.
“We would like to know why the government deprived us and gave preference to those who couldn’t be considered for the recruitment process by any chance”, Nath maintained. He reiterated that the body would continue fight till the goal is achieved. Notably, the Supreme Court agreed to hear state government’s plea challenging the Tripura High Court order that terminated 10,323 school teachers on account of gross irregularities in their appointment since 2010.
A division bench headed by Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar and Justice RK Agrawal also issued notice on state government’s plea to the petitioners on whose plea the High Court had delivered the verdict and asked them to file their responses before September 12 next. The division bench stayed the High Court’s order directing the state government to frame a new employment policy within two months. State government filed a special leave petition in the Supreme Court on June 10 last.
