AGARTALA, Feb 22 (TIWN): Ahead of Tripura's High Court's next hearing, Joint Movement Committee's Joint-Convener Ajay Debbarma who was leading a meeting with "Justice for 10323 Teachers'' (an indigenous 10323 teachers group) said that 10323 teachers are not worried about what the High Court will decide about protest-permission but they (JMC members) are now planning for the next protest programmes. 'Justice for 10323' held a meeting at the Red Cross Society building today in Agartala. Addressing the media, Ajay Debbarma said, "In the ongoing case at Tripura High Court, it will only give verdict on the Agartala City Centre protest. It may come in our favour or against but our protest space is open for the whole Tripura. We are going to decentralize our protest from town to village to over hills". 

"We are today deciding about our future programmes. But, here I have to say that recently Education Minister Ratanlal Nath said in a press meet that 10323 teachers numbers are not mentioned in the verdict. So we want to know what the exact terminated teachers numbers", ``said Ajay Debbarma.

He further pointed, "When we filed a case in the Supreme Court and State Govt had replied to the notice issued by Supreme Court, it said on 18th June, 2020 that only 462 teachers were affected and on 22nd July's affidavit also, 462 numbers were given as terminated teachers' numbers. When we asked the Education Dept about that, the Dept could not reply but said that it was a Cabinet decision. Such things are quite confusing. Moreover, out of 58 petitions, why 57 petitions were implemented, not 58. Why did one petition remain unimplemented? Till we get answers from the Govt about it, our protest will continue".
