NONGPOH, Sept. 13:


Deficit school teachers of different zone including Nongpoh, Umsning and eastern Ri Bhoi on Monday under the umbrella of the Khasi Jaintia Deficit School Teachers’ Association (KJDSTA) observed a dharna as a part of the agitation programme of the association in Nongpoh over the failure of the state government to implement the 40 percent arrears as per the recommendations of the Fourth Pay Commission and regularizing their monthly salary.

Kular Khongjirem, member of the KJDSTA central body, said that the deficit teachers have been facing problems due to non release of the arrears and non regularization of their salaries, even though other government employees have already received their arrears.

"The teachers will stand united in protesting against the government, until the demand of 40 percent arrears and regularization of salary is met," he said.
