HYDERABAD: Deputy chief minister K Srihari wanted Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to expedite the process of rationalisation of teachers.
Srihari along with AP education minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao submitted a joint memorandum to the Union home minister in Delhi on Wednesday.
“The issue regarding the unification of the services of the teachers of government schools and teachers of local bodies has been under litigation since 1998. This has resulted in a difficult situation for the school education department, because we are not able to fill large number of vacancies in posts,” Srihari informed the Union Minister in his representation.
The Supreme Court, in its judgement in 2015 directed, “The state government is at liberty to send a proposal to the Union government for obtaining the approval of the President of India to integrate the teachers of Panchayat Samithis and Zilla Parishads, who are also government servants with the existing local cadres of teachers.”
