HYDERABAD: About 2,000 B.Ed graduates marched through the Osmania University campus here on Tuesday, demanding that the state government fill all the School Assistant (SA) posts through direct recruitment.
The State B.Ed Candidates Association has also called for a two-day bandh of all B.Ed colleges and universities in the state on January 11 and 12. Association president Alvala Madhusudan said they would intensify the agitation if the government did not make direct recruitment to vacant SA posts.
The government issued a GO recently, creating 9,569 SA posts and announced direct recruitment.
Major unions of teachers are opposed to direct recruitments to all posts, saying that the government has to fill 70 pc SA posts through promotions as per teacher service guidelines.
