President of EJAC Abdul Qayoom Wani today alleged that attempts are being made by MHRD ministry and state government to “demoralise” government teachers. 

“Any move to discourage govt teachers in the name of NAS, Pretham and other surveys will be fought tooth and nail,” Wani said chairing a meeting of EJAC in Jammu. 

“In the meeting, the NAS conducted at central as well as state level under the directions of MHRD involving private school teachers was discussed threadbare. It was unanimously observed that such surveys and other assignments conducted by private school teachers or private sector is aimed to discourage the government teachers,” Wani said. 

“We will resist if such type of surveys and evaluating modules are repeated in which the government teachers are sidelined,” he added.  

“We are in touch with central level teacher organisations to resist such moves from MHRD and step motherly treatment with government sector. if the people at the helm of affairs feel that the government teachers are not fair in evaluation what will be the fate of the nation? I urged upon the Education minister Syed Muhammad Altaf Bukhari to look into the sensitivity of the issue involving sentiments of lakhs of teachers and the authorities of the education  department be directed  not to take government sector or government teachers for a ride,” Wani said. 

“We are hopeful that Education minister who is working with positive mind set will not allow such one sided decisions in future. We will not compromise with the honour, dignity and respect of the employees of the education department especially teachers. There should be non discriminating attitude in text books, uniform, examination and infrastructure. Paying meager amount of Rs.200 for uniform to government school students is a cruel joke,” he said.
