ReT forum to lockdown schools on June 15,16


The JK Rehbr-e-Taleem Teachers Forum (JKReTTF) has threatened to lockdown all the government Primary and Middle schools on June 15 and 16 if the government failed to release their pending salary.
In a handout issued here, the spokesman accused the state government of step-motherly treatment towards the teachers working under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) scheme in government schools.
"Thousands of SSA teachers continue to suffer for want of the salaries which are pending since January 2017. The assurances of education and finance minister of releasing the salaries proved to be a damp squib," the spokesman said.
"It seems that the government has  forgotten that they have to pay the salaries of thousands of SSA teachers who find it difficult to meet their both ends in this holy month of Ramzan," the spokesman said.
"Government should release the pending salaries of SSA teachers without any further delay," he said.
