Literacy project workers allege unfair deal

They are effected due to dropping of projects

 In a memorandum submitted to the legislator V Muniyappa recently, they have staged that the government started implementing the literacy programme through Lok Shikshana Directorate in the State. As many as 140 motivators and deputy motivators were serving under 69 continuing education centres and seven nodal centres in the taluk, to further the objectives of the programme.

Apart from imparting literacy, the continuing education centres used to serve as a community centre, information centre and entertainment centre as well.

Educated youths were carrying out these tasks at continuing education centres for honourarium. Motivators and deputy motivators have taken up responsibilities such as imparting literacy to gram panchayat members, literacy in 18 days and one month at camp-based programmes.

They were instrumental in ensuring a thrift of Rs 2 crore by women groups. The government’s measure in dropping the project all of a sudden has caused injustice to the youth who had involved them in socially useful productive work, the memorandum said.

They have demanded using the services of motivators and deputy motivators for some other government schemes for the literacy programme itself and have warned of launching a stir if the demand is not met.

Legislator V Muniyappa, who received the memorandum, assured of bringing the matter to the notice of the government.

Taluk motivators and deputy motivators association president G N Kyathappa, secretary Muniraju, leaders B N Nanjamma, Anjaneya Reddy, Narasimhappa and others were present.
