36000 Primary Teachers’ Jobs: Government will challenge the decision of the High Court, CM said – I am feeling very bad
Primary Teachers Job: Mamta Banerjee government is going to file an appeal against the court’s decision. Mamta Banerjee has asked the removed teachers not to worry.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee told the media on Monday that her government would challenge the Calcutta High Court’s decision to cancel the jobs of 36,000 primary teachers working in government schools and government-aided schools.
During this, he asked the teachers and their family members who lost their jobs not to be depressed. He said that the government is with them. He also alleged that teachers have lost their jobs due to the ongoing agitation by state government employees demanding hike in their DA and bringing it at par with central government employees.
He told the media, “We are getting appeals from the families of these 36,000 who have lost their jobs. I feel very bad. We have decided to go to the Division Bench.”
The Calcutta High Court on Friday ordered cancellation of appointments of 36,000 primary teachers in government and aided schools as due process was not followed in the recruitment process. Mamta Banerjee said on Monday that do not despair, remember that our government is with you. It is our responsibility and we will fight the matter as per legal terms.
Earlier, the Calcutta High Court allowed the West Bengal Board of Primary Education to file an appeal against the order canceling the appointment of 36,000 primary teachers.
Lakshmi Gupta, counsel for the West Bengal Board of Primary Education, mentioned the matter before a division bench headed by Justice Subrata Talukdar and sought the court’s permission to challenge the May 12 order of the single bench of Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay.
The Division Bench also includes Justice Supratim Bhattacharya. He allowed an appeal in the case. Ordering to quash the appointment of nearly 36,000 candidates who were untrained at the time of their recruitment as primary teachers, Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay on Friday said that “corruption of this magnitude” had never been seen in West Bengal.
