Volunteers allege indifference; seek priority
ENGAGEMENT OF PRERAKS UNDER TLC
Ganderbal, Aug 10: The volunteers under Total Literacy Campaign, a centrally sponsored scheme, are up in arms against the authorities for allegedly ignoring their experience for engagement as Preraks, the posts of which were advertised by Zilla Sakhsharta Samiti.
The volunteer teachers have demanded their engagement as Preraks without adopting merit base system. “Government had promised us that it will give due credit to the experienced candidates, but now they are ignoring us,” the agitated volunteers told Greater Kashmir.
According to the notification, the authorities were engaging matric pass unemployed educated youth as Preraks under TLC for which a candidate will be selected on the merit bases for the post. According to scheme the selected candidate will be engaged for 30 months on contractual basis.
According to the volunteers, they have worked with the TLC scheme from the last five years without wages. “The authorities promised us that we will be given priority for the posts of Preraks, but the assurances proved a mere hoax,” they said, adding the authorities had invited applications from all the eligible matric pass unemployed youth for the Prerak post.
DC Ganderbal, Showkat Ahmad, who is also Chairman district ZSS, said during appointment of Preraks, preferences would be given to TLC volunteers. “We are following guidelines of the government and preference will be given to TLC volunteers by giving them 20 extra points against their work. However, the government has not any plan where all TLC volunteers can be engaged as preraks," DC said.
