Shimla (Himachal Pradesh) [India], November 20 (ANI): The High Court of Himachal Pradesh has held that State is trying to save money by sucking the blood of poor helpless unemployed youth who are compelled to accept any term imposed upon them, a release from the court said.

A Division Bench Comprising Justice Vivek Singh Thakur and Justice Sandeep Sharma, passed this order.

The Court observed that despite repeated directions by the Courts to the State to provide regular Teachers in the schools, the State, irrespective of persons in power, has failed to follow the directions and appoint regular teachers.

The State has formulated and implemented Grant-in-Aid to Parent Teacher Association Rules, 2006 for providing financial support to the PTA Teachers serving in all schools of the State of Himachal Pradesh.

However, vide communication dated August 28, 2007, the benefit thereof was declared inadmissible to the PTA Teachers serving in the schools situated in the area of Municipal Corporations, Municipal Committees and Nagar Panchayat of the State, the release said.
