BENGALURU: The BJP has demanded a “fair and uniform policy” on the installation of CCTV cameras in schools and the withdrawal of the Karnataka Education (Amendment) Bill, 2014, which party leaders claim discriminates between teachers working in government and private aided schools.
The party’s MLCs Y Narayanaswamy and Arun Shahapur on Monday said the directions on the present circular on installation of CCTV cameras are being implemented aggressively only in private schools.
They claimed that the government itself is not following them and that this needs to be addressed to ensure a “fair system across the state”.
The leaders also opposed the stopping of salary grants to erring aided schools, saying this has thrown the teachers working in these schools into the deep end. They demanded immediate withdrawal of this order.
The MLCs also demanded the withdrawal of the Karnataka Education (Amendment) Bill, 2014, passed in the Belagavi session of the state legislature, saying it discriminates between teachers on everything from salary to benefits.
