 TURA: The All Garo Hills Primary School Teachers’ Association plans to seek an appeal against the High Court’s recent order which calls for quashing the government recruitment of 93 teachers under Dadenggre Deputy inspector of Schools jurisdiction.

The appointment of teachers into government lower primary schools in Dadenggre civil sub-division was taken up in 2009 by the elementary and mass education directorate of the state education department leading to initial appointment of 76 teachers.

That appointment was challenged in the Guwahati high Court, Shillong bench, by three candidates who missed out on the selection list. The candidates Joleswar Koch, Bikendra Hajong and Smt. Parulbala Hajong filed a writ petition challenging the government appointment and claimed the State Reservation Policy was not adhered to and the final list was prepared out of merit without categorizing the reserved and unreserved candidates.

Among the three candidates Smt Parulbala Hajong made the lone entry into the waiting list with the remaining two petitioners failing to clear the interview board.

When the petitioners approached the Shillong bench a verdict was given in October by High court judge SC Das quashing the appointment list in favor of the three candidates.

Since the appointment for the primary teachers had been conducted close to two years ago and all the appointees had joined government service the teachers association (AGHPSTA) has decided to take up their plight and file an appeal before the Shillong bench to stay its order on quashing the selection list and instead uphold the list prepared and released by the education department.

“It is a matter of 93 innocent and genuine teachers who could lose their jobs for no reason whatsoever. That is why we have decided to approach the High Court to stay its quashing order,” said Mritunjoy Ch Marak, general secretary of the AGHPSTA.
