On Friday, a delegation of PTTI students met Banerjee. “The state government will have to employ all the students who are waiting with degrees and conduct examinations for those who still have not taken their exams,” she said.
Along with PTTI students, the Trinamool chief will take part in a protest rally at Metro Channel on November 29. She has asked the students to meet Kalyan Banerjee, a Trinamool leader and also a noted lawyer, with the necessary documents to examine the legality of the issue.
Banerjee has also assured the students that she will write to the Ministry of Human Resources and Development. She has also asked Leader of Opposition Partha Chhatterjee to inform Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi regarding the issue.
“We have approached Mamata with two demands — to join our protest and ask the Centre to resolve the issue as early as possible. She has agreed to both,” said Ashok Rudra, a PTTI student leader and a part of the delegation that met Banerjee.
Earlier, the PTTI students had met CPM state Secretary Biman Bose and Congress leaders Pranab Mukherjee and Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi over the deadlock.
The PTTI students have renewed their agitation after the Calcutta High Court had declared that the certificates of the students who had graduated from the 122 PTTIs as “invalid”, as they had not followed the norms of the National Council of Teachers Education.
