Dimapur, November 2 (MExN): All Nagaland Adhoc Teachers Union (ANATU has demanded that the Department of School Education apply same yardstick for regularization of adhoc teachers in the State. In a letter addressed to the Minister for School Education, ANATU President Neizevotuo Nakhro and General Secretary Huskha Sema stated that, the department must not encourage partiality and show parity in regularization of all adhoc teachers.   
ANATU maintains that while the government passed orders for the regularization of some group of ahoc teachers from 2007 to 2011, the present group is still waiting. ANATU claims that many of those regularized during this period were either their contemporaries or those who joined service after them. Hence, in order to maintain equality and seniority, the present adhoc teachers are demanding that their regularization date be effected from 2007; maintaining that if it is not done, their junior colleagues would supersede the present adhoc teachers.  ANATU added that any order executed by the government should be in the interest of all teachers.  
ANATU further pointed out that on earlier occasions it had given representation, memorandum, ultimatum, etc to the department and also undertook a peaceful agitation in Kohima this year. ANATU reminded that the adhoc teachers ended the agitation only on the basis of the assurance given by the department that their request would be considered within a period of 30 days.  With the lapse of time given by the department, ANATU has requested the Minister of School Education for intervention and to anticipate their genuine demand in regularizing of their services.  
ANATU also reminded that “teachers by profession are the mentors of every intellectual of the society and is known as one of the most noble and respected profession.” However, in the context of Nagaland, although they diligently delegate their best service for the welfare of the students’, they are being made to suffer.
