Minister for School Ed­u­ca­tion K.A. Sen­got­taiyan has said that no­tices had been served to teach­ers who burnt copies of a gov­ern­ment or­der dur­ing a re­cent protest.

The Minister told pressper­sons here on Satur­day that cases were reg­is­tered against teach­ers who at­tempted to burn and burnt copies of GO No 303 that pre­vented them from get­ting the pay on a par with the Union gov­ern­ment teach­ers.

“They have right to protest demo­crat­i­cally, but not the way they did,” he said. No­tices were served on teach­ers seek­ing their ex­pla­na­tion af­ter which ac­tion would be ini­ti­ated. He said that an one-man com­mit­tee set up by the State gov­ern­ment to rec­tify pay anom­alies of gov­ern­ment school teach­ers was ex­pected to sub­mit its re­port in a few weeks.

Erode-based Sak­thi Masala Pvt. Ltd. has sought gov­ern­ment con­tri­bu­tion for start­ing a home for dif­fer­ently-abled chil­dren who lost their par­ents. The is­sue would be taken up with the Chief Minister, he added.
