Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das said the state government was acting positively to protect the interest of the para teachers and inorder to safeguard their interests rules were being framed.
In a meeting with the delegation of para teachers he said that children hailing from poor families study in government schools and it is the target of the government to ensure that they too can become doctors and engineers therefore they needed to be provided quality education in which the role of para teachers is very important. He said that once the rules are framed they too will not be forced to start agitation in support of their demands everytime.
The Chief Minister said that a welfare fund has been constituted for the para teachers which would be beneficial for them. He said that to solve any issue it is important that entire procedure is followed. He said that the government was working as per the procedure so that whatever decisions are taken is in the interest of all and the decision can stand in the court.
The Chief Minister said that the state government was ready to work as per the rules of Uttar Pradesh or Chhattisgarh but that would be not beneficial for the para teachers. The members of the delegation said that they too do not want rules of other states and are satisfied with fact that Jharkhand was framing its own rules and they also expressed regret for their agitation on the state formation day.
The members of the delegation thanked the Chief Minister for his positive approach. Those present on the occasion included president of para teachers association Sanjay Dubey and others.
