Teachers recruited under education guarantee scheme (EGS), alternative innovative education (AIE) and as special trainers (STR) on Sunday announced to stage a protest on November 25, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Bathinda to lay the foundation stone of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences. The decision was taken at a meeting held near the district administrative complex, Bathinda on Sunday.

Union leader Gagan Abohar said that since the state government wasn’t listening to their demand of regularising their services, they have decided to stage a protest during Modi’s visit. Meanwhile, another group of teachers also staged a protest near Hanuman Chowk to press their demands.

These teachers were recruited following a protest by the union in February 2014, just before the Lok Sabha elections, during which a 14-month-old girl, Eknoor Kaur ‘Rooth’, died after authorities allegedly snatched the protesters’ quilts despite the biting cold.
