Appoint Anglo-Indian teachers in government schools: AICA to Jagan

Vijayawada: Anglo-Indian Community Association (AICA) has urged the Andhra Pradesh government to appoint their community members as teachers in government schools and provide jobs to unemployed youth.

Anglo-Indian Community is one of the smallest minority communities in Andhra Pradesh. Around 1.2 lakh Anglo Indians live in Vizag, Vijayawada, Rajahmundry, Kakinada, Guntur, Guntakal and Birtagunta. They have been well regarded for their contributions to education, music, sports, and medicine.

Secretary of AICA, Andhra Pradesh, June Gallyot said they have written a letter to the chief minister requesting him to consider their demands.

"The union government has abolished reserved seats for Anglo-Indians in the Parliament and state legislature. We are requesting the AP government to consider nominating our members to Christian Minority Finance Corporation or any other corporations and commissions. We urge the government to consider Joseph Howell from Vizag and Maryann Josephine Dsouza from Vijayawada for any nominated posts,", June Gallyot added.




AICA has also asked the government to appoint Anglo-Indian teachers in government schools, skill development, and spoken English centers. Besides, they have sought jobs for unemployed youth.

"The government is focusing on making English medium compulsory in schools. The service of Anglo-Indian teachers can be utilized," she added.

President-in-Chief Leonard Harper and Treasurer Dominic Powell requested establishing community halls for in Vizag, Vijayawada, and Guntakal.

"Due to lack of job opportunities and poor financial conditions, few of our community members migrated to other countries for livelihood. Those who stayed back did not get jobs or proper assistance from the government. We are expecting a positive response from the government," they added.
