Must read

Shillong, March 21: Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Tuesday assured that the government will examine the issue of regularizing teachers in non-government lower primary schools.

“We will examine the matter so that we will be able to take correct steps,” Sangma told the Assembly.

He said that the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance-I government was able to resolve the issue, which was pending for 30 years, by regularizing the services of over 461 teachers posted at non-government lower primary schools. These were those appointed by administrator/deputy inspector of schools prior to 2007.

Earlier in his reply, education minister Rakkam A Sangma informed that 1985 teachers in government lower primary schools were also regularized.

When UDP Nongpoh legislator Mayralborn Syiem wanted to know the fate of those teachers in non-government lower primary schools who have been left out, Rakkam said that he does not have the information but the point raised has been noted and he will get the matter examined.

Syiem, however, urged the minister to look into the issue related to these teachers.

To a query raised by VPP legislator from Nongkrem Ardent M Basaiawmoit on whether the government will regularize all adhoc teachers, the minister replied ‘no’.
