Kodangal: Teachers slam government for lack of facilities in schools
Kodangal: The members of Telangana State United Teachers' Federation (TSUTF), while staging a protest in Kodangal on Friday, vent their angst against the State government for not implementing the KG-to-PG education programme in the State.
Speaking on the occasion, TSUTF president Basappa said that the State government had miserably failed in fulfilling promises it made to teachers and did not fulfil a single promise in the last five years.
"The State government is trying to weaken the government education system. In the last five years, it had not taken any initiative to improve basic facilities in government schools across Mahbubnagar. The students are studying under pathetic conditions. The government had failed to fill up the vacant posts of teachers, MEO and DEO in the State.
Overall, the entire education system in the State is in doldrums. In view of this, the teachers' associations across the State had given a call to stage a protest and bring the government to accountability," said Basappa.
The teachers' association leaders staged a protest near Kodangal Tahsildar office. They stated that they thought that after the formation of Telangana, they would get a chance to resolve the long-pending issues they were facing. However, after the formation of Telangana, the State government had forgotten all its promise and in addition, it is behaving in an insensitive manner and ignoring the teachers' issues.
He said unless the government comes forward to resolve all pending issues, they would not go back and would intensify their protest till their demands are met.
