A Government teacher of the Government Middle School, Gorakh Nagar has been admitted to GMC Bakshi Nagar after he attempts to Suicide. The reason behind his attempts is that he was not getting a salary and he was in an economic crisis.
While talking to the media a fellow teacher said “the teacher who attempted suicide himself called me and told me that he has consumed something poisonous and requested me to look after his children. He also asked me that if possible kindly place his wife in a government job. Hearing this I immediately called the principal of the school and he informed me that he has consumed some sort of poison and we are taking him to the hospital. The principal asked me also to come to the hospital. For the past 2 years, he was not getting his salary as he was on medical leave from January 2020 to March 2020. According to the rule if our leaves exceed the limit then we have to submit a medical certificate daily basis and he has already submitted the certificate. In April 2020 during the Corona period, he joined the school but after that also he didn’t get his salary. I have talked with the ZEO officer and he has said that from February he will be getting his salary and all his previous dues will be cleared very soon”. “Currently his condition is very critical and we pray for his life”, the fellow teacher concluded.
