The alleged callous attitude of the State Government in filling up vacant  Hindi teacher posts has spread resentment among the unemployed aspirants.

Bhagirathi Behera, leader of the unemployed Hindi teachers’ association, told mediapersons here on Sunday that around 1,500 posts are lying vacant. While graduates and Sahitya Ratna degree holders were earlier appointed as Hindi teachers in schools, the School and Mass Education Department had made BEd mandatory for the posts since 2011, he added.

Behera said the lone Hindi training college in Cuttack has only 100 seats with 50 per cent reserved for inservice candidates.

Since seats are inadequate against the vacancies, youths having requisite degree should instead be appointed to the vacant posts in the larger interest of the students, he said, adding that it will also help mitigate the unemployment problem.
