JKTF held protest over pick, choose policy in transfer

Jammu Kashmir Teachers Forum (JKTF) held a demonstration in front of the Directorate of School Education Jammu in which hundreds of teachers of various districts of Jammu province under the banner of Jammu Kashmir Teachers Forum participated under the leadership of Ganesh Khajuria State General Secretary of the Forum.
The teachers raised slogans against the education authorities for their pick and choose policy in the transfer of teachers, master and lecturers.
While addressing the gathering, Ganesh Khajuria condemned the violations of transfer policy in which favourtism has been done by making the transfers within zero kilometer in the Jammu City and in the some cases in the same premises of the educational institutions. A great resentment was expressed by the protestors towards the arrogant and insensitive attitude of the Director School Education Jammu. The teachers demanded immediate ouster of two teachers engaged by the Director to deal and manage the whole affairs of the Directorate resulting into complete mess and mismanagement in transfer matters without taking care of the genuine grievances of the teaching
community. The speakers took a strong notice of the malpractices adopted in the transfers by befooling the teachers in the name of much publicised transfer melas.
The JKTF leaders asked the education authorities to desist from the policies which are detrimental for the education department in general and teaching fraternity in particular. The forum warned the authorities to make the transfers/modifications strictly as per the transfer policy taking into care the genuine cases of modifications as assured and committed by the Director School Education Jammu within two days otherwise the forum shall launch a decisive struggle for which the programme shall be announced in the press conference. The forum appealed Education Minister Naeem Akhter to personally intervene into this matter keeping in view the gravity of the situation and deteriorating working
of the Directorate to do the justice with the aggrieved teaching fraternity.
