Patiala, January 13

Members of the teachers’ unions today burnt effigies and posters of the Punjab Government. The teachers, under the banner of Punjab-UT Employees and Pensioners Front and the Democratic Teachers’ Front, said the state government had failed to implement their various demands and in protest they burnt copies of the Congress manifesto.

They said the state government had failed to regularise the services of 36,000 contractual workers. “The government has also stopped a number of benefits being given to the employees. Demands of computer teachers have also been ignored. Moreover, the government made no efforts to implement the sixth pay commission report,” the protesters said.

Teachers of primary, high and senior secondary schools protested at their respective schools throughout the district.
