She met a delegation of the PTTI students at her residence on Sunday and assured them of help.
“She said no ordinance can be issued in this regard and the only respite that can be given is through extension of the relaxation to the students by the National Council of Teacher’s Education,” said Prabir Ghosh, the president of the PTTI students union.
In an interaction with the students, she also asked them to present their demands to Partha Chaterjee, Trinamool Congress leader and the leader of Opposition in the Assembly.
“We want that all students should first be offered jobs and then based on the requisite qualification of a higher secondary degree and over 50 per cent marks, they can be inducted in a bridge course,” said a student, who was part of the delegation.
The students are pinning the hopes on Banerjee to find some solution before the state government appoints primary teachers.
Over 50,000 vacancies of primary teachers lie in the state as there has been no recruitment in last two years.
