  • Print

Non-government teachers continued their sit-in program for the third consecutive day on Tuesday in the city demanding their inclusion in the Monthly Pay Order (MPO).

A group of teachers under the banner of Non-MPO Educational Institu-tions' Teachers and Employees Federation gathered in front of the Jatiya Press Club around 10:00am for their pre-declared sit-in which was earlier foiled by police on Monday.  Meanwhile, Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid assured that government will implement the demand of the teachers.

The teachers staged the demonstration as Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid did not take any initiative to fulfill their demand, said Principal Golum Mahmudunnabi Dollar, president of the federation. Even, Finance Minister AMA Muhith in the proposed budget for the next fiscal did not make any specific declaration about their enlistment for the subvention, he added.

During the demonstration, the teachers also declared to reject the education minister's assurance where he said the non-government teachers will be gradually enlisted for the subvention even if there is no allocation in the budget.Asim Kumar Baral, an agitated teacher said the education minister assured them several times and it is the 27th time they came to Dhaka to raise their demand.

"We thought that the finance minister would allocate some budget for us but it is so frustrating that he did not even mentioned about the issue in the proposed budget," he added.Federation General Secretary Principal Dr Binay Bhushan Ray along with other federation leaders was also present during the sit-in program.
