The protesters demanded resignation of the director of School Education, while seeking immediate halt to all processes related to the recruitment of 1140 pre-primary teachers on contract basis.

They alleged that the ongoing recruitment process contravened the NEP-2020 guidelines for appointment of teachers.

Talking to the reporters on the sidelines of the protest, DESAM president Mayengbam Somorjit said that the students’ body has been seeking conduct of the recruitment of pre-primary teachers strictly as per the guidelines laid down under the NEP-2020.

Despite repeated appeals from the students’ body to stop, the recruitment processes continue, he alleged, while asserting that DESAM has been campaigning not to indulge in acts compromising quality of education by all concerns.
