Srinagar: Rehbar-e-Taleem (ReT) teachers, including women, on Saturday staged a dharna in Srinagar in support of their demands.
The ReT who had come from different parts of the valley assembled near Press Enclave Srinagar, raising slogans in support of their demands.
Similar demonstrations were also organized at Jammu Press Club, a spokesperson of the Jammu and Kashmir Rehbar-e-Taleem Teachers Forum (JKReTTF) said.
Chairman of the Forum Farooq Ahmad Tantray said that forty one thousand ReT teachers under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) are without salaries from last three months and their families are grappling with odds and passing through traumatizing situation due to financial constraints.
“All the assurances and promises of Education Minister and Finance Minister have fallen flat on the ground and teachers are compelled to lock the schools and protest on the streets for highlighting their plight,” said Tantray.
