Mukul Roy writes to Amit Shah highlighting problems of para-teachers in West Bengal

New Delhi [India], February 15 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national vice-president Mukul Roy on Monday wrote to Union Home Minister Amit Shah highlighting the problems of the para-teachers in West Bengal.
In the letter, Roy said the West Bengal government ‘deliberately ignored’ the demands of the para-teachers.
“The para-teachers in West Bengal have been deprived of their just rights including the promised honorarium for a long time. Their pleas to the State Government including Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee remained unheard and ignored,” said the letter.
He said that while the pay-scale of para-teachers in other states was quite high, in West Bengal, the para-teachers get an honorarium of Rs 10,000 for serving in Primary Schools and Rs 13,000 for Upper Primary Schools.
“The para-teachers now have come down to streets to voice their demands. Their demand for a pay structure at par with other Indian states is being ignored by the West Bengal state government. Notably, West Bengal has over 63,000 para teachers under the Samagra Siksha Mission of West Bengal who are getting deprived of fair pay,” Roy wrote.
On January 27, demanding an equal salary as that of permanent teachers, an association of teachers forum including part-time teachers staged a protest outside West Bengal Assembly. (ANI)

New Delhi [India], February 26 (ANI): Indian health eco-system is being seen with new eyes, new respect and new credibility today, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday.
Speaking at the convocation of Tamil Nadu’s Dr MGR Medical University via video conferencing, Prime Minister said that during the ‘unexpected COVID-19 crisis’ India has not only made a new path but helped others too.
“In a time of COVID-19, India has not only made a new path but helped others too. Today, India is among the countries with the lowest death rate and high recovery rate. Indian health eco-system is being seen with new eyes, new respect, and new credibility. However, this also means that the world will have greater expectations from you which is a responsibility on your young and strong shoulders,” the Prime Minister said.
He said that doctors are among the most respected professionals in our country, and today after the pandemic, the respect has gone up even more.
PM Modi said his government in the past six years had done multiple things to improve the medical sector in the country.
“During the last 6 years, MBBS Seats increased by more than 30 thousand, which is a rise of more than 50 per cent from 2014. The number of PG seats increased by 24,000 which is a rise of around 80 per cent from 2014. In 2014, there were six AIIMS in the country. In the last 6 years, we have sanctioned 15 more AIIMS across the country,” he said
He added that the National Medical Commission established by his government will bring “great transparency and will rationalise norms to set up new medical colleges”.
“It will also improve the quality and availability of human resources in this sector,” he said.
He also remembered former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu MG Ramachandran on the occasion and said that the success of students and the institution would have made the great MGR very happy.
“His governance was full of compassion towards the poor. The subjects of healthcare, education and empowerment of women were dear to him. A few years ago I went to Sri Lanka where MGR was born. India is honoured to be working with Tamil sisters and brothers in Sri Lanka in the health sector. India’s efforts for the Tamil Community in Sri Lanka would have made MGR happy,” PM added. (ANI)
