Visakhapatnam: Taking a serious note of participation by a group of government teachers in opposition leader Y S Jaganmohan Reddy's Praja Sankalpa Yatra in Vizianagaram on last Sunday, District Educational Officer B Lingeswara Reddy issued suspension orders to nine teachers on Tuesday.

The teachers and employees demanding that the government cancel the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS) met YSRCP chief and urged him to support their agitation. Responding to their plea, he announced after his party came to power, the CPS would be cancelled.

In order to express their gratitude to Jaganmohan Reddy's response on the CPS issue, nine government teachers working in Ananthagiri, Bheemili and Anandapuram mandals reportedly expressed their wish to see him as the next Chief Minister and assured to do their bit for his success.

Sources said that some people identified the teachers when they met YS Jagan and informed TDP MLAs and HRD Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao.
After confirming that the teachers did meet Jagan Reddy and expressed solidarity with him, DEO Lingeswara Reddy issued the suspension orders. According to the 19 of 1 Code of Conduct of Service Rules, the teachers were suspended, the DEO told The Hans India.

YSRCP criticises govt action
Government action of suspending teachers is untenable and there is nothing wrong in the aggrieved people including employees meeting the Leader of Opposition to present their issues and seeking resolution of the same, said the YSRCP leaders who reminded that their party already announced its stand against the CPS.

It also alleged that several IAS and IPS officers including Intelligence Chief AB Venkateswara Rao were working as a Telugu Desam Party workers. The intelligence Department had become a unit of TDP, they castigated. What action was taken against them, the YSRCP leaders demanded to know.

The party strongly demanded that the government revoke the suspension orders. If not, the YSR Congress Party would wage a protest till justice was done to them, V Vijay Sai Reddy, MP and key Leader in the party, told The Hans India.
