2 unemployed ETT teachers protest by climbing atop a water tank; Seek raise, better salaries

Two unemployed ETT TET pass teachers climbed atop a water tank at Government Mohindra College on Monday, to demonstrate against the state government.

Unless their long-pending demands were fulfilled, the teachers said they would not get down. They demand that the Department of Education repeal the B.Ed entry clause in ETT and immediately advertise their 10,000 new posts.

In particular, the police arrested and booked them on Sunday after conducting a sit-in outside the residence of Vijay Inder Singla, Punjab's Minister of Education.

On Sunday, demanding jobs, ETT and TET pass teachers protested against the state government. They gathered in the Baradari gardens and raised slogans.
