Mr Hans Singh and Mr Malkeet Singh, state general secretary and district general secretary, respectively, of the Gazetted and non-Gazetted SC BC Employees Welfare Federation have alleged that the Education Department authorities were discriminating against employees belonging to the SC and the BC in the matter of promotion.

In a press note issued here yesterday, Mr Hans Singh said the Education Department was ignoring teachers of the SC and BC categories while considering the cases of promotion even when they fulfilled all conditions required. He further alleged that the federation of general category teachers was pressuring the Education Minister, Mr Tota Singh, to change the rules and guidelines of promotion in the favour of the teachers of general category.
