Hyderabad: The State government is planning to knock the doors of the Supreme Court following the High Court scrapping uniform service rules for teachers on Tuesday. According to sources, Deputy Chief Minister Kadiyam Srihari is expected to meet the representatives of the teachers' associations and hold consultations with them on different aspects of the observations in the judgment of the court. After this, the Deputy Chief Minister would brief Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, and a final decision would be taken on making an appeal against the HC verdict in the apex court, said a senior official from the Higher Education department.

Meanwhile, the Telangana State United Teachers’ Front (TSTUF) blamed the State government’s negligence which resulted in an adverse verdict on the uniformed service rules for teachers. TSUTF State Committee said on Tuesday that the litigation over the uniformed service rules for teachers had been creating havoc in the entire education sector in the State for the last two decades. Had the government acted in a more responsible manner, the issue could have been sorted out long ago, said TSUTF, general secretary Chava Ravi.

He said the State government did not respond in a proactive manner after the issue of Presidential orders on uniform service rules. Besides, it did not try to get the status quo vacated with the pending of litigation on the issue before the State High Court for the last one year, he said. “The State government had acted at the eleventh-hour roping in senior Supreme Court lawyers to argue the case following the pressure mounted by the teachers’ association. But, they could not argue effectively before the HC, as they were not able to take stock of the backdrop of the entire litigation properly. This is what has resulted in an adverse verdict,” he pointed out.

Following the adverse judgment, the TSUTF demanded that the State government take necessary steps in the larger interest of thousands of teachers, their services and promotions. Meanwhile, the State government should announce the schedule to the management-wise schools where the position of headmasters and school assistant positions were vacant, it said.
