OUR STAFF REPORTER SIALKOT - After the cancellation of their transfer orders allegedly issued on political grounds, the female teachers have refused to rejoin their duties at the government primary schools located at the far-off villages of Bajwat, Sialkot tehsil, saying that the transfer was their basic right. However, the Sialkot Education Department has cancelled their transfer orders, forcing them to rejoin their duties at their earlier posts. Talking to the media, the teachers said that though they had been appointed as the local teachers but there were no basic facilities in Bajwat schools due to which they used their political influence and got themselves transferred to the urban areas schools in Sialkot. They said that they will not rejoin their duties till the provision of basic facilities including electricity, potable water, class rooms, furniture, toilets and boundary walls at these schools. They said that the inordinate delay in providing such basic missing facilities by the department was the denial of the basic rights of the students and teachers. They pointed out that local influential people had already converted most of the schools into the cattle sheds. No proper regular classes in the schools have yet been started after the summer vacation due to the unavailability of teachers. In 2010, the department had recruited these teachers who have low qualification after seeking special relaxation in qualification from graduation to matriculation due to unavailability of highly qualified local candidates. Meanwhile, Sialkot Executive District Officer Dr Javaid Chishti said that the transfer orders of all the politically transferred teachers have been cancelled with immediate effect and these teachers have been asked to rejoin their duties immediately. The teachers whose transfer orders were cancelled include Sobia Rasheed, Sadia Tabassam , Fareeda Shaheen, Shehnaz Kausar, Iram Shehzadi, Mafia Naz, Asima Shehzadi, Tahira Yasmeen, Mussarat Shaheen, Nusrat Shareef, Sana Kausar , Tayyuba Bano, Nargis Noureen, Misbah Muneer, Shagufta Parveen, Asia Ghulam Qadir, Farzana Batool, Kulsoom Mukhtar and Neelam Salman. The EDO admitted that these transfers were made illegally on political grounds with the alleged malpractice of some officials of the department and probe has also been ordered against them.
