TECC to launch movement raising demands of public including teaching staff on October 18


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, October 16, 2023: In a significant development, the Tripura Employees Coordinating Committee has announced plans to initiate a movement to address a range of public demands, with a specific focus on the concerns of teaching staff. Swapan Bal, General Secretary of the Tripura Employees Coordination Committee, disclosed this pivotal announcement during a press conference held at the Coordination Bhavan on the Melarmath here on Monday.

The committee’s move is in response to longstanding grievances articulated by the All India State Government Employees Federation, which has persistently championed a 7-point secret demand across the nation. Regrettably, the present government has yet to make tangible efforts towards resolving these concerns.

In light of this, the All India State Government Employees Federation, in collaboration with the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Warders, is set to orchestrate a teacher-employee rally at Delhi’s renowned Ramlila Maidan on November 3. This event will also feature the participation of influential organizations such as STFI, Railways, All India Insurance Employees Association, and more.

To ensure the success of this rally, various promotional initiatives are currently underway throughout the state. Earlier, a joint convention was convened on June 11 at the Agartala Town Hall, followed by district-level conventions held in July and August.

Notably, an Agartala Jatha program, originally scheduled for August 8, was thwarted by the local police administration. Nevertheless, resolute in their commitment to addressing the public’s needs, on October 18, Agartala will organize a road meeting at Paradise Chowmuhani, voicing the demands of the public, including the concerns of state teaching staff.

Among the prominent demands are the immediate disbursement of 22 percent DA and DR dues to state teachers and pensioners. The movement also calls for the cessation of all forms of outsourcing and contract recruitment, advocating for the appointment of regular employees to all vacant positions. Furthermore, it seeks the regularization of all irregular employees, encompassing contractual, outsourced, and daily wage workers.

Swapan Bal emphasized that their campaign aims to eliminate the increased electricity tariffs and property taxes, marking the movement as a crucial milestone in the collective efforts to secure these fundamental rights for the citizens of Tripura.

The anticipation of the rally at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi, combined with these resolute demands, signals a burgeoning wave of activism in the state of Tripura, as various stakeholders unite to champion their rights and welfare.
