Hyderabad: Hundreds of TRT candidates, who had been selected for teacher posts but were not given appointment letters so far, staged a protest at the Dharna Chowk here on Tuesday condemning the delay in the recruitment process.
National president of BC Welfare Association R Krishnaiah, founder-president of Jana Samithi Prof Kodandaram, former Minister Chinna Reddy, national vice-president of BC Welfare Association Gujja Krishna, PCC leader Harshavardhan Reddy and chairman of the association of unemployed youth Neela Venkatesh extended their solidarity with the protestors by participating in the protest.
Speaking on the occasion, speakers expressed their anguish at the inordinate delay in TRT recruitments.
Terming the delay as unfortunate, they said that the 8,792 candidates had to undergo mental agony as they were not appointed even after more than a year after the issue of notification.
They appealed to the Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao to intervene and ensure the dispatch of appointment letters to the selected candidates by the third week of March.
The speakers alleged that the State government has been deliberately ignoring school education and thousands of teacher posts have been kept vacant. As a result, the poor families were forced to join their children in private schools and as a result, facing financial crisis due to the high fee structure, they lamented.
Condemning the indifferent attitude of the state public service commission, they said that the recruitment process, which was supposed to be completed within four months, could not be completed even after 18 months.
On the other hand, several government schools have been closed due to lack of teachers, they alleged.
Contradicting public service commission's contention that recruitment was delayed due to court cases, they criticised the commission for its lack of commitment in resolving the issue.
