AGARTALA, Jan 10 (TIWN): Does not matter how far the ruling politicians claim about development while giving speech but the reality is just horrifying under the BJP era in Tripura. Poverty and deprivation are fueling suicide attempts among 10323 teachers, as one more teacher of JMC, Rumi Debbarma committed suicide today by consuming acid raising the death toll to 80. She also gave acid to her 1-year old son. Both Rumi and her husband were a part of the JMC movement as they both lost their jobs in March 2020 and could not run their family for remaining jobless for 10 months. Today, Manohari Jamatia, another 10323 teacher died due to illness. He did not had money for his treatment.

Accompanied by their children and family members, thousands of retrenched teachers under the banner of the Joint Movement Committee (JMC) continued their protests throughout the day and vowed to continue their agitation until the government reinstated their jobs.  After Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb, state Education and Law Minister Ratan Lal Nath has urged the agitated teachers to compete for the vacant 9,000 posts in various departments, including the Education department, for which the state government recently issued recruitment notifications.
