Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha will hold talks with the legal representatives of the 10,323 retrenched teachers on November 22 (Tuesday) to find a possible solution to the vexed problem.

A major group of 10,323 retrenched teachers are on a fast unto death since the last 32 days near the Rabindra Bhavan demanding restoration of their services.

Earlier, representatives of the 10,323 teachers met the Chief Minister and put forward their demand for restoration of their services and they were assured that there will be a meeting of ‘extended form’ after Durga puja.

Kamal Deb, who leads the agitation on behalf of 10,323 teachers confirmed the invitation of the meeting with the Chief Minister scheduled on November 22.

“We are informed that the Chief Minister will hold an extended forum to discuss our problem and find an amble solution for the livelihood of 10,323 teachers,” he said.

Deb said it was good that the chief minister has initiated a fresh bid to resolve the problem.

The High Court of Tripura terminated all the 10,323 teachers of different categories declaring the entire recruitment process as illegal and faulty in 2014 following several writ petitions. However, the then Manik Sarkar government had filed a SLP in the Supreme Court challenging the High Court’s verdict but its appeal was quashed by the apex court in March 2017.
