DEMANDING REGULARISATION: Shiksha Mitras staging a demonstration near the Uttarakhand Assembly on Wednesday.
DEHRA DUN: The Uttarakhand Assembly witnessed repeated adjournments on Wednesday with the opposition Congress thronging the well of the House and shouting slogans demanding justice for the Shiksha Mitras who had been agitating for regularisation.
Leader of the Opposition Harak Singh Rawat accused the Government of trying to use Shiksha Mitras as slaves. “What can these teachers teach to the students when their own careers were not settled?” he said.
The Shiksha Mitras, staging a rally, tried to break the barricades outside the Assembly even as the MLAs raised their issue in the House.
The Government, however, completed the day's business in the second half.
Later talking to newspersons, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prakash Pant accused the Congress of creating unnecessary commotion in the House to stall all discussions that could take place if the House functioned normally.
Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank reiterated his call to the Opposition for healthy discussions in the House. “Sessions of the House cost heavily on the poor man's pocket and the MLAs elected to raise issues related to the constituents should behave responsibly,” he said.
