Telangana tribal association demand
Hyderabad: The Telangana Tribal Association has appealed to the state government to fill the posts of contract residential teachers (CRT) in tribal ashram schools run by tribal welfare department from tribal candidates. The tribal association has demanded to this extent in the background of receiving applications from candidates for the filling of CRT posts. The state president and general secretaries of the association, M. Dharmanayak and R. Sriram Naik, criticized the district officials for acting contrary to the orders of the state tribal welfare department to give priority to local tribal candidates and fill them in these posts.
In Nagar-Kurnool district as well as in many districts, they strongly opposed the complete opposite filling and demanded that all the immediate CRT posts should be filled with tribal candidates. He said that in the notification issued by the Commissioner of Tribal Welfare Department, the first priority is to provide job opportunities to the local tribals, but in various districts, appointments are being made completely contrary to that. Due to this, the qualified tribal candidates are at risk of serious loss. They said that giving notification with open roster system even in scheduled area is completely different from constitutional rights in scheduled area. Nagar Kurnool district has 15 ashram schools out of which 9 are in agency area. There are also ANM posts. They warned that if the CRT posts were not filled with tribal candidates, they would stage a state-wide agitation. It is stated that the circular has made it clear that where there are no tribal candidates, they should be replaced with tribal leaders in the roster system. He warned that the DTDO office will be blockaded if tribal candidates are not given first priority and replaced.
