AGARTALA, Feb 26 (TIWN): 10323 Teachers have announced Relay Hunger Strike from March 5th in ADC areas in Tripura seeking their jobs back. Talking to the media, Joint Movement Committee's Joint Convener cum Justice for 10323 Teachers President Ajay Debbarma said that they were seeking permission to protest in Agartala for a month from Tripura Police but no permission was given to them which has forced the teachers to decide about Hunger Strike at the ADC. On being asked about why they are choosing the ADC Areas, Ajay Debbarma replied, "10323 recruitment was such a recruitment where the highest numbers of indigenous people got jobs. Over 3500 tribal families are affected due to the terminations. So, it's fair enough for protesting in ADC, especially when police are not permitting 10323 teachers to protest in Agartala". 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 across Tripura".

"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", he said.
