“Thus, we have decided that although we will be taking our classes on December 20 but would be wearing black ribbon as a mark of protest and after the school is over, all the teachers of different KV’s would you are observing a 30 minute long silence in protest to the policies of the government”, said Agrawal.
It is also been decided that on the same day the representative of association, in 25 regions of KVS, would present a memorandum to the respective regional office (RO’s) heads on the same date regarding the demands that has been put forth in front of the government. The office bearers of the association would be meeting the Commissioner at Delhi, while their representatives at all the RO’s would be meeting the deputy commissioner (DC’s) of the respective regions.
Among the demands that have been put forth by the association includes implementation of the modified assured career progression scheme (MACPS) which surprisingly Sangathan has implemented for the non-teaching staff whereas the teachers have been deprived of the same.
