A representative body of 10,323 teachers, facing termination in Tripura after December 31 according to the Supreme Court verdict, on Thursday organised a march to the secretariat demanding job security. A petition filed by the government to extend the tenure of employment of teachers facing termination is expected to be heard at the Supreme Court on December 11. All Tripura 10323 Teachers Association leader and graduate teacher Uttam Kumar Dey said around 50,000 people, including family members of teachers facing termination, are staring at a humanitarian crisis. "The minister has assured us that the government was actively looking into all possible ways to save our jobs. "We condemn any attempt to create unrest and anarchy in the name of national highway or rail blockade," the teacher said.
