Nagaland: Closure of schools in Tzurangkong enters day five
Mokokchung, Oct. 30 (EMN): The Tzurangkong Students’ Conference (TKM) has reaffirmed that it will continue with the indefinite closure of schools and Education Block Research Centres (EBRC) in Tzurangkong range if its demands are not fulfilled.
“The TKM would like to state that the closure of the schools and other steps shall be continued even to the extent of affecting the upcoming final examination scheduled in the month of November,” an update from TKM stated on Sunday.
TKM had launched the indefinite agitation in Tzurangkong range since October 25 demanding the department of School Education to provide adequate number of teachers in the schools.
“A week’s agitation has resulted in some random redeployment which was unacceptable since some schools did not receive a single teacher. If need be, the agitation will continue indefinitely,” TKM asserted.
“We have heard of excess teachers in the state, we are just in need of adequate number of teachers in the schools,” it added.
The closure of schools spearheaded by TKM is backed by the Tzurangkong Range Council and Tzurangkong Women Association.
‘A joint sitting of these groups have drafted resolutions regarding further steps of agitation which would be initiated very soon,’ the TKM warned.
