The Election Commission of India has announced by-elections to 7 Assembly Constituencies across the country, including two Assembly Constituencies in Tripura.
The election will be held on September 5. In A statement from the Tripura Government Employees’ Association TGEA demanded that the election be postponed on that day.
The statement said, September 5 is the National Teacher’s Day of our country. On that day, teachers are felicitated everywhere from national to block level through various programs.
In every election teachers take on several responsibilities.
Tripura Government Teachers’ Association (HB Road) therefore demands the Election Commission to change the date of the by-elections instead of September 5.
