Teachers stage demonstration

Staff Reporter

TIRUCHI: Members of the Association of University Teachers (AUT) staged a demonstration here on Wednesday urging the Chief Minister to take immediate steps to fill vacancies in aided colleges.

Vacancies numbering 2,300 arose owing to the death or retirement of employees in the State's 162 aided colleges and non-filling of the posts was detrimental to the interests of students belonging to socially and economically backward sections of the society, said Felicia Rajammal Selvarani, AUT zonal chairman.

As a consequence, managements either suspend admissions or even close down courses.
