Maintaining that the teachers are also pained that the learning process has been halted, FEGOCTA spokesperson P Birachandra urged the student bodies to support the agitation.
Federation of College Teachers’ Associations (FEGOCTA) spokesperson P Birachandra on Saturday questioned the government whether it intends to implement the policy of the University Grants Commission (UGC) or not. It is unfortunate that the government has not responded positively so far, despite the teachers continue to agitate for the issuance of the orders for implementation of 7th UGC Pay and Regulations, 2018.
Birachandra was speaking to media persons at the sit-in held at Manipur College, Imphal under the aegis of FEGOCTA. The teachers have been agitating for the past couple of months and resorted to class-boycott since February 17.
The spokesperson also asserted that the treatment of the college teachers amounts to breach of the Right to Equality.
FEGOCTA believes that the implementation of the 7th Pay and Regulations, 2018 for the college teachers will change the college education system of the state, he said and added that no solution can be brought about blaming the teachers. FEGOCTA believes in talks and democratic solutions, he added.
On the recent remark that the students are being victimised by the deadlock between the government and the teachers, Birachandra said that it would be wrong to take it that way. The ongoing democratic agitations was necessitated by the failure of the government despite several assurances.
Maintaining that the teachers are also pained that the learning process has been halted, he urged the student bodies to support the agitation.FEGOCTA, boycott classes
