All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) has criticized the new education policy adopted by the Assam government for not provincialised new schools.
AIUDF MLA and party General Secretary Aminul Islam alleged, “more than 400 teachers of venture schools have committed suicide in the last decade and 1000 other teachers retired without getting salaries.”
He further said, “more than 23,000 teaching and non-teaching staff are working in 2659 venture schools in the state which are yet to provincialise.”
He also said that his party will support the fight of teachers of venture schools and will continue to raise the issue in and outside of the Assam assembly.
