AGARTALA, Jan 15 (TIWN): On the 40th day of JMC of the 10323 teachers has said that the teachers to wait till tomorrow as the Education Dept had sought time till 16th January to reply to their all legal queries. Talking to media, JMC member Kamal Dey said that as the Education Secretary promised the teachers to reply by 16th, so they will wait till then but if tomorrow no satisfactory answer can be given by the Education Dept, then the protest will be escalated like it was never before. The Education Dept which said to give a written letter to the 10323 teachers JMC before 16th January, however, has not replied to them. Addressing from the agitation spot, JMC member Mintu Debbarma raised various legal queries which JMC raised earlier many times already. He asked, why the Govt is silent on those points ? Why it is not breaking its silence over 10323 teachers questions. Tomorrow however, the JMC is scheduled to meet the Education Secretary whom they met on January 13 and submitted a memorandum with such legal queries as - 1) Where are the 10323 teachers' names in petition and in verdict ? 2) Why no termination letter was given etc.

JMC member Arunjoy Chakma said, "We had no fault but on that time when High Court verdict came, may be, we could not explain the matter properly resulted huge badmouthing against us but the people who had indulged in bad mouthing about us, they have too realized their faults and thus no such propaganda is seen today. However, a little section is still active and we want to warn them to correct their attitudes. We had no fault. We were also recruited in the same process which was applied for other employees as per Govt's guidelines".

"We never thought, such things would happen to us but few politicians for their own interest destroyed our lives and made us bound to sit near the drains of the city. We are protesting for 40 days. How we are passing days, we only know. Mosquitoes to drain smells have turned our lives miserable but for our livelihood and for the education system, we are doing this. We are also humans. Our patience can not be held for a long time", said Arunjoy Chakma.
