Agartala, August 13, 2019: A nine member team of 10323 terminated teachers of Tripura today met the State Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath and handed over an 8-point charter of demand. The Minister along with officials of the Education department and Law secretary discussed complexities of present condition of terminated teachers. The Minister also exchanged views with the delegates of the terminated teachers. Considering the gravity of the situation, the Minister remained positive and sensitive to the plight of the terminated teachers.

The Government is positive and sincerely considering the issue, State president and secretary of the All Tripura 10323 Teachers’ Association said. Leaders of the Asso also said, the Minister will hold another meeting with concerned official to explore and place rehabilitation proposals to the Government.
