Five teacher unions on Wednesday threatened to stage a dharna in front of the office of the Integrated Tribal Development Agency (ITDA) at Utnoor on November 21 to protest the alleged illegal promotions and deputations to teachers. The Unions demanded action against the Tribal Welfare Deputy Director who indulged in giving illegal promotions and deputations to 11 teachers.

Addressing a press conference, representatives of the Democratic Teachers Federation, United Teachers Federation, State Teachers Union, Telangana Region Teachers Union and AP Teachers Federation released a list of names of teachers who were given promotions and deputations illegally. They said the promotions for PG headmaster posts needed to be done through counselling.
