“We will protest at Freedom Park in Bengaluru and put forward 26 demands, including transfer of teachers. We will stay up for the announcement through the government till evening on that day. If the government fails to announce transfers, the next mode of protest shall be introduced quickly. We are able to sacrifice our lives for the cause of teachers. Teachers, especially those serving in rural areas, are fed up with the step motherly treatment through the government. We will not tolerate anymore. If the government does no longer react undoubtedly, we will consider boycotting classes, happening starvation strike or different modes of protest,” he added.

“Over 78,000 packages searching for transfer are pending with the government because of lobbying through teachers serving in urban areas for over 10 years in urban areas. Many of the teachers who implemented for transfers have lost their lives because of pressure and different reasons,” he mentioned.

L I Lakkammanavar, Sharannappagouda R Ok, S F Patil, Rajashri Prabhakar, Govind Jujare and others had been present.
