TIRUPATI: The Social Welfare All Teachers' Association (SWATA) has urged the State Government to resolve all the problems it has raised in its 15-point charter of demands.

It said that the teachers were all a dejected lot because of the continued neglect of their problems by the successive governments.

"Most of us have put in services ranging from 10 to 20 years and we feel rather orphaned over the way the government had left us in the lurch without giving us any promotion nor incentives," said leaders of the association in their signed statement on Monday.

Demands highlighted

Some of the major demands highlighted in their memorandum submitted to the Government are giving promotion to senior PETs with B.Ed qualification as PD Grade-II on a par with the those working in the govt high schools, transfer of NCC officers from one education institution to another.

Another demand is that upgraded residential school be bifurcated as independent junior colleges and schools with due justice to the junior lecturers and the school level staff.
