Ramadoss seeks CM’s intervention in teacher recruitment issue

PMK founder S. Ramadoss on Thursday urged Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami and School Education Minister K.A. Sengottaiyan to direct the Teachers Recruitment Board (TRB) to take back its appeal in the Supreme Court against the Madras High Court directive to prepare a new list for the appointment of postgraduate teachers across schools.

In a statement, he pointed out that 83 candidates from the Most Backward Classes and five from the Scheduled Castes had lost the opportunity because of improper implementation of the reservation policy.

Mr. Ramadoss pointed out that the Madras High Court direction on March 19 was yet to be implemented by the TRB, and it had gone on appeal to the Supreme Court. He said the State government should not be a spectator to such social injustice.

Mr. Ramadoss said the TRB going on appeal showed that its officials had some vendetta against the MBC.
