Lucknow, Sep 15 (UNI) The opposition Samajwadi Party today demanded the Uttar Pradesh government file a special leave petition against the Allahabad High Court order annulling the entire exercise undertaken by the previous regime, for the appointment of 13,000 special BTC Urdu teachers in primary schools.
Yesterday, the HC had declared the entire exercise undertaken by the state government during the previous Mulayam Singh Yadav regime as ''illegal and contrary to statutory rules.'' Talking to newspersons here this evening, senior SP leader and leader of the Opposition in Legislative council Ahmad Hasan said the Mulayam government had recruited 13,000 Urdu teachers as a means to provide them livelihood and the entire selection process was according to rules.
Claiming that he was not commenting on the court order and that he respected the judiciary, the SP leader said the party wanted that the state government urgently file a special leave petition in this regard.
Thousands of families are in a predicament over livelihood, following the HC order, Mr Hasan added.
''Courts have passed such orders in the past also and the state government has successfully appealed against them,'' he reminded.
The former UP minister advised the state government to put all aspects of the case before the HC in right earnest, so that the affected people get a immediate relief.
''How much sensitive is the Mayawati government on this issue will become clear with what action the regime takes,'' he quipped.
However, Mr Hasan alleged that the state government motives were not fair, which was clear from the recent annullment of police recruitments in UP, conducted in the previous regime.
In its yesterday's order regarding appointment Urdu teachers, the HC had also quashed the advertisements published in pursuance thereof.
Giving this judgement, Justice Arun Tandon said the admissions granted in respect of the said course were illegal and the District Institutes of Education and Training (DIETs) cannot be permitted to provide any further training to the students.
