Shimla: The government does not seem to be in any mood to bow to the demands of JBT trainees currently involved in a state-wide protest demanding permanent jobs. A spokesperson of the education department today asked the JBT trainees interested in pursuing their training, to give in writing about the same by 15th June, 2010, to the principals of DIET institution, so that government could take appropriate decision regarding carrying out their training. He said that the trainees who joined their training classes on 10th June, 2010, and were not involved in any agitation would continue their training.
The spokesperson said that keeping in view the agitation and violation of law and order, the state government has taken a decision to suspend the training of those JBT trainees of 2008-10 batch till further orders, who failed to join their training in their respective institutions despite notice by the government to join training sessions by 10th June, 2010.
