Hunger strike of ReT teacher's, a deep concern
Sunainamalik (Rajouri)9/17/2018 10:18:06 PM
It is very tough for me to comprehend, why humanity in our society has reached to its least levels? inspite of knowing the fact that our ReT teachers have been on strike for last four months, inspite of knowing the fact that they are dying on open roads due to their ongoing hunger strike, inspite of knowing the fact that they do not have enough money to feed the hungry mouth of their children, inspite of knowing the fact that their place is in the schools over poor children of India rather than on roads, inspite of knowing the fact that they are being beaten, tortured and detained in jails many times and inspite of knowing the fact that they are also a part of our society, we are mum.
As a part of fact, these 41000 ReTs do not entered in education department through back doors but they have joined the department under Govt. SRO No. 396 and once some body gets enlisted as Govt. employee, Government becomes liable to bestow all the benefits of employment to its employees but friends case is quite inverse in this case. Our poor ReT teachers are not even getting regular monthly salary but they are also being denied of other benefits of employment.
Agitation of ReTs is gaining momentum day by day. Not only male but our females, newly wedded wives, feeding mothers along with their young ones are joining this just agitation of their rights. Social, print as well as electronic media is crammed with news of this tsunami of ReT teachers. These unfortunate agitations have not only effected the lives and families of our teachers but these also have left deep marks on the psychology of innocent children. Frequent questions from toddler of our ReT teachers like "papa when you will get pay and we will buy new clothes and sweets" have shaken my heart and make me to burst into tears.
Friends, to your revelation Supreme Court first constitutionalised the right of equal pay for equal work which is directive principle of 39(d) in the constitution in 1982 judgment called Randhir singh v union of India. The Supreme Court grounded equal pay for equal work in article 14 of constitution and observed that where all " relevant considerations are same" the government could not deny equal pay simply by performing the bureaucratic manoeuvres of splitting the work force in different parts and different departments.
In addition to this, Article 43( living wage etc for workers) __The state shall endeavor to secure by suitable legislation or economic organization or in another way to all workers agricultural or otherwise, a living wage conditions of work ensuring a decent standard of life and full enjoyment of leisure, social and cultural opportunities.
But friends irony here is, authorities always come up with an excuse of scarcity of funds but question arises why there is scarcity of funds in govt. treasures?The answer to this most discussed question is implementation of wrong policies by authorities
(1) Was there any need to raise the salaries of MLA and MLCs from 80000 to 160000 when state of JK has innumerable unpaid half paid and unemployed state subjects in front?
(2) Was there any need to enhance the retirement age of employees by two years when state is being overloaded by new educated unemployed entries every years?
(3)Was there any need to raise the salaries of gazetted govt. employees from 60000 to 100000 when state has innumerable hungry mouth dying out of starvation.
In the conclusion, i want to say, it is not wise to fill already filled glasses of water when we have lot of half filled and empty glasses in front. In this alarming type of situation, Government should come up with a policy of fixed salary because 30000 per month salary is more than enough to run a family smoothly. The money so saved can be utilized to credit the accounts of half filled and empty account holders of state Government employees.
