Mukhy shikshak nae shikshak ni farjo:The Election Commission has given relief to the teachers. Now, BLO duty can be imposed on teachers only after leave or school timings.
In the letter issued to the District Magistrates, the Commission has directed that the teaching work is being affected due to the teachers being engaged in the duty of BLO. The responsibility of BLO should be given to teachers only during holidays or after school hours so that there is no impact on reading. But there is no such obligation for non-teachers. Their duty can be imposed at any time.
Let me tell you that all the complaints were being received about the duty of teachers as BLO. People were complaining about reading and learning. The Commission has given this order in view of these things. However, effective action on this order does not appear to be taking place.
The decision of the government teachers in Madhya Pradesh to impose duty in the corona-infected areas has now come to an end. Now the duty of these teachers will be imposed after training and scrutiny. Amidst the Corona crisis in Bhopal, the decision to impose teacher’s duty was opposed from the beginning. In view of this, the government has withdrawn its decision. The issue was raised prominently by the Zee MPCG. In fact, in Bhopal, the DEO issued an order and ordered the teachers to conduct survey in the Corona-infected areas. Duty of 3 to 3 teachers was imposed in one ward. Who will gather information about the people who come in contact with infected patients. At the same time, these teachers were also posted in JP Hospital.
The MP Teachers Congress had objected to this order. The Congress had said that it is not right to put teachers in this work without training. MP Teachers Congress had also demanded the government to provide facilities and insurance like the Health Department for the teachers doing duty in Corona crisis.
Teachers Congress state president Ashutosh Pandey said that teachers are being given survey work without training and medical kits. While the Health Department, Municipal Corporation and police team have been put on duty with PPE kits, masks, gloves and sanitizers. They have also been given the benefit of special allowances and insurance. Teachers Congress also wrote a letter to CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan to reconsider the decision to send teachers to Corona-infected areas without preparation.
