Gurgaon: Candidates shortlisted for contractual deployment in the education department under Haryana Kaushal Rozgar Nigam (HKRN) decided to stage a hunger strike in October if they are not handed appointment letters by September. They also plan to meet education minister Kanwar Pal Gujjar on September 2.
The 2,069 shortlisted candidates in the second list are “struggling to make ends meet” as they have lost their private jobs and are waiting for their appointment letters for contractual jobs as trained graduate teachers (TGT) and postgraduate teachers (PGT) since December 3 last year. They cannot even apply for another job under HKRN as the portal reads, “You can’t apply for this post. You’re already shortlisted”.
Last month, they met the chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar five times and Gujjar once.
“At every meeting, the chief minister kept saying that our letters will be at our doorsteps within 15 days or a month maximum. We have no jobs in our hands. Our funds have dried up and we have families to run. We are struggling, so we have decided to stage a hunger strike,” said Deepak Kaliraman, a TGT in English from Jind.
Meanwhile, education minister Kanwar PalGujjar, on August 19, announced that the department of education was looking athiring 9,000 more teachers under HKRN.
The shortlisted candidates plan to meet Gujjar on Saturday, two weeks after he promised us an “appointment within a week.” “We want to know if we will be hired and ask him for a written and signed copy of the promise. We will then take the note to the directorate of secondary education (DSE) and ask where exactly the problem lies,” said Navya Arora, another TGT from Karnal.
Neeraj, a TGT who hails from Gurgaon, said, “Most of the candidates are women and have no source of income in their families. We are surviving onthe edge.”
She added that if the candidates are not given appointment letters,“at least remove their names fromthe selected list so that we can apply for some other post.”
