SRINAGAR: The Rehbar-e-Taleem (ReT) teachers on Tuesday staged protests against alleged discrimination by the government, saying that the order issued for the confirmation as permanent employees are still pending.
The women ReT teachers assembled at Srinagars Press Enclave and chanted slogans like we want justice. The protesters were demanding implementation of the order.
Talking to KNS, the women ReT protesters said they are on roads today against the alleged discrimination by the government. The orders regarding the confirmation as permanent employees are still pending while as the order has been implemented in the Jammu, they said.
They said that they will not attend their duties until the government wont implement the order on the ground. The government by delaying the process in Kashmir is leaving the ReT teachers in lurch at large. The government must fulfil our demand at earliest so that the ReT teachers could feel a sigh of relief, they said.
They appealed the Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti and the Minister for Education, Syed Altaf Bukhari, to look into the matter and fulfil their demands as soon as possible.
Later, the protesters later dispersed peacefully.
