AGARTALA, Jan 21 (TIWN): Even though it was promised to 10323 teachers by the state BJP that before the election their problems would be sorted out, but due to sudden election date's announcement, the matter is now sidelined. But the 10323 teachers yet having total 5 months more in hands but the SSA Teachers' jobs are totally under danger after the 31st March, 2018, which has generated a tension among the helpless teachers. In this regard a convention will be conducted by the SSA teachers on January 24 at Agartala, where the teachers to discuss about their next steps.

Tripura Education Minister Tapan Chakrbaorty had written a letter to MHRD Minister Prakash Yavedkar and based on his letter, the notification on Nov 15, 2017 came. 

It was only Tripura Education Minister Tapan Chakraborty who wrote a letter to Prakash Yavedkar on 7th August, 2017 for a common regularization rules for SSA teachers. 

Following Tapan Chakraborty’s letter, it was asked to all states on 15th November to bring the SSA teachers under the state govt employees.  But when the letter came, the Tripura govt moved 180 degree saying that they left with ‘No option’ and thus the SSAs will be terminated on 31st March, 2018.

However, SSA Teachers led by SSA Welfare Association will go in massive protest within a week. Recently a letter was written to MHRD by the SSA and right now the teachers are waiting for the replies from MHRD. But when Chief Minister Manik Sarkar is holding the chairmanship of SSA's Governing Counseling,  he himself has four times rejected to meet the SSA teachers.

On the other side, Education Minister Tapan Chakraborty said that they are having a funding issue from the centre.  Not only this, Chakraborty also said there are some legal issues while appointing them, but SSA teachers told Tapan Chakraborty that when state govt had appointed the SSA Teachers, then the regularizing duty also goes to the state govt. Bastab Debbarma also criticizing the SSAs who are calling for 8th Left Front Govt and not joining SSAs movement said, "If job would not stay, what will they do with 8th Govt of their party". With these, SSA teachers  will go with more supports this time and hold a massive protest within next 8 days.

In a letter to all the state govts on Nov 15, MHRD Joint Secretary Manish Garg told states, "The Dept has emphasizing to the states during the PAB meeting that the states should fill up the state vacancies first before filling up posts under SSAs. Teachers salaries, equivalent to vacant state cadre posts which was deducted in the past for Odisha Chattishgarh in 2014-2015. Accordingly it has been decided that the salaries of the teachers sanctioned under SSAs to the tune of teacher vacancies in the state sector will be shifted to state and will not be funded under SSAs".
