    Anti-CAA Protests: School Teacher Terminated In Assam, Students Extend Support

    Demanding withdrawal of the termination notice, the students extended support to the teacher

    A woman school teacher has been served with a termination notice for supporting school students participating in anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 (CAA) protests.

    Nandita Bora, who has been serving as a computer teacher at Titabar Navodaya Vidyalaya in Jorhat district, has received the termination notice from the school principal, Mukesh Kumar.

    It may be mentioned, the Assam government has warned its employees of disciplinary action against those “indulging and participating in political activities” on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and Instagram. The department of education has formed a monitoring cell to monitor the “prohibited activities”.

    Demanding withdrawal of the termination notice, the students extended support to the teacher. On the other hand, All Assam Students’ Union and Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad have set “24-hour deadline” to restore the teacher.

    As the Rajya Sabha passed the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill on December 11th, 2019, massive protests broke out in the state. Protests against the contentious CAA are still going on in Assam with agitators staging sit-ins across the state. However, no violence was reported anywhere in the state.
