Contractual teachers protest outside Sisodia’s residence

New Delhi, April 9 (IANS) Contractual teachers staged protest on Saturday outside Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s residence over termination of their services under the Sarva Siksha Abhiyan (SSA) scheme.

The services of 1,920 teachers, who were employed under the SSA scheme, were terminated from March 31 allegedly due to the discontinuation of the post by the ministry of human resource development.

The Delhi government, however, had told the teachers that they would be allowed to serve as guest teachers.

Sisodia also holds the education portfolio.

“The protestors were raising slogans against the government and were demanding permanent employment as teachers. We have detained some 100 protestors agitating outside deputy CM’s house. They have been taken to Tilak Marg police station,” a Delhi police official told IANS.
