Leaders of the Telangana Region Teachers’ Union (TAPAS) today urged BJP state president and MP Bandi Sanjay Kumar to bring the problems of teachers and education to the attention of the government and work towards their solution. As part of this, a petition was filed demanding the abolition of the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS), immediate transfers and promotions, and pressure on the government to bring justice to the 317 bio-victims.
Bandi Sanjay, who is currently doing the Praja Sangrama Yatra in the Maheshwaram constituency is on the 30th day of his yatra, where he was met at the Padayatra camp by several state leaders including TAPAS state presidents Hanmant Rao and Nawat Suresh. Since the formation of Telangana state, there have been no promotions for junior lecturers, diet lecturers, MEOs, deputy EOs, GHM, PSHM, and school assistants. It is seen that there were literally no transfers of employees from 2018 to date. They claimed that many teachers were harmed with the GO 317, mentioning that there was no salvation for applications made under the spouse category and that GO has made it difficult to enforce the possibility of reciprocal transfers. Leaders of the Telangana Contributory Pension Scheme Hyderabad District Employees’ Association also submitted a petition to Bandi Sanjay asking him to fight for the abolition of CPS.
After listening carefully to their problems, Bandi Sanjay expressed his support for the abolition of CPS. He said he would fight on behalf of the employees on the issue and put pressure on the government. He said that many struggles have already been waged for the abolition of 317 GO along with transfers and promotions of employees and that movements will be launched to put pressure on the government in the future as well. The BJP has promised to revise 317 GO if they come to power and immediately take up the process of transfers and promotions.
