Unemployed teachers meet DC

Tribune News Service

Patiala, June 11

Miffed at the lack of job opportunities in the state, TET (Teacher Eligibility Test)-qualified unemployed teachers today handed over a memorandum to Deputy Commissioner. 

Demanding jobs, the unemployed teachers, under the banner of BEd TET Pass Unemployed Teachers’ Union, met DC Kumar Amit at his office.

Aman Sekha, a member of the committee of the union, said the Congress government had assured them of jobs in their election manifesto, but was yet to honour the promise. He said, “More than 50,000 youths have already cleared the TET, but still they are unemployed. Our degrees are of no use as we are unemployed since long.”

The teachers said Captain’s Ghar Ghar Rozegar scheme seemed to be a humbug as qualified youngsters were taking to streets while demanding jobs.

Meanwhile, Randeep Sangatpura, a TET pass teacher, said, “Youngsters are dejected due to lack of job opportunities.”
