Census 2011: Maharashtra Govt. faces wrath of the teachers
Tuesday, April 27, 2010 08:54:56 PM, UNI
Mumbai: Teachers have come down heavily on the Maharashtra Government and the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation for forcing them to undergo training for enumerators of Census 2011.
''Teachers of all private schools and colleges in Mumbai and elsewhere are being assigned Census duty in capacity of enumerators for which they have to go from house to house.", said C A Sadashivan, President of MFUCTO (a Teachers' organisation).
''Principals of the schools and colleges in the state have been directed to send names of all teaching and non-teaching staff members in their respective institutions for the purpose. Despite the Principals' request that the School/College can not depute any teachers for the said work, there is compulsion exercised on them including the threat of registering complaints against them and issuing of arrest warrant,'' he said.
''The action of the Government and the Muncipal Corporation is improper and can not be justified on any ground. Teachers are at present involved in examination duties. The work in respect of Census is being assigned to them is amounted to neglect the interest of lakhs of students,'' he added.
The teachers organisation demanded from Maharashtra government and the civic body to immediately intervene and stop this harassment and threat by relieving the academic community completely from census work otherwise they will go to the court for justice, the president added.
