TDN World Desk: Amid lock down 8,882 teachers have been terminated in Tripura after the Supreme Court termed their recruitment process as flawed.To support them financially during the coronavirus lock down period the BJP-led state government have announced on Wednesday to give them Rs 35,000.

During the Left regime, a total of 10,323 undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate teachers were appointed in different phases.The recruitment process was challenged in the Tripura High Court which terminated their services, saying that the recruitment was faulty.

“Yesterday was the last day of their job but the state govt had filed a petition before the Supreme Court through an email for providing appointments to 8,882 ad-hoc teachers in permanent non-teaching posts.

“We hope that the apex court will soon pronounce its verdict to resolve the problem of the ad-hoc teachers,” Deb said.

During the assembly election the state BJP assured the teachers no to worry about their jobs if the party voted to power.However, after the termination of these teachers question arises whether the BJP’s assurance to retain the teachers was just a mere hollow promise with no other aim than to bag victory in election.
