Contractual teacher allegedly ends life due to job insecurity in UP

Kannauj/ Lucknow, Sep 14 (ANI): A contractual teacher committed suicide by hanging himself in Kannauj district of Uttar Pradesh, day after court declared government's move to regularise contractual teachers in the state illegal. Around thousands of contractual teachers were to become assistant teachers but Allahabad High Court on Saturday ruled that the government violated norms in passing the order.

Though family of Babu Singh said that he ended his life following the "disappointing" court order, police is investigating the case. These teachers were appointed under the rule of precious state government and had been given two-years training to become primary teaches.

State Education Minister Ram Govind Chaudhary appealed to teachers not to take such tragic steps.
