Telangana teachers threaten to shut schools

Posted by on July 18, 2011 0 Comment

Troubled days are ahead for students what with the teaching community claiming that the government schools in Telangana region could be closed as part of the proposed non-cooperation movement by the employees.

At a meeting of Progressive Recognised Teachers’ Union (PRTU), the largest teachers’ union in the state, in Adilabad on Sunday, the speakers had decided to close the government schools in the region to express solidarity with the non-cooperation movement to mount pressure on the Union government to take an immediate decision in favour of Telangana.

It may be recalled that various Telangana employees’ unions had served a notice on the state government to launch the non-cooperation movement after August 1. In this regard, a unanimous resolution was passed at the PRTU meeting. Representatives from Nizamabad, Adilabad and Khammam districts took part in it.

A majority of the speakers said pressure on the Centre could be brought only if the students also take part actively in the movement.

Former union president and MLC V Mohan Reddy said that they were ready to make sacrifices to achieve separate Telangana state. TOI
