Tarn Taran, January 13

Teachers of different government schools on Thursday lodged a protest against the state government. The protesting teachers burnt ‘Lohri’ of the photos of Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and other ministers and the Congress election manifesto for their alleged false promises.

On the call of Punjab and UT Mulazim and Pensioners Joint Front, teachers under the banner of Democratic Teachers Front organised protests at Manochahal Kalan, Chohla Sahib, Jalalabad schools and other schools near Tarn Taran.

Protesters said the CM did nothing to implement their accepted demands.

The leaders said that due to the negligence adopted at the part of the state government and particularly the CM, the current demands such as regularising the services of teachers, removing the discrepancies in the sixth pay commission report, recruitment of teachers, reinstating the stopped allowances, restoring of the old pension scheme etc. had not been implemented till now.
