Srinagar: Advisor to the Governor, Khurshid Ahmed Ganai, who is also in-charge of Education Department, Monday made an appeal to the teachers to “not to resort to extreme measures like hunger strikes as the Government has already constituted a Committee headed by Principal Secretary Finance to look into the grievances of teachers, in particular the SSA Teachers.”

He also said that teachers are among the most valuable assets of the society and their welfare is uppermost priority of the Government. He further said that due to the combined efforts of the government and the teachers, school education has reached the nook and corner of the state and children from all sections of the society were getting enrolled in the schools.
