SRINAGAR: Castigating severely the state government over its lackadaisical approach in mitigation of the burning issue of pending SSA salaries, the Jammu and Kashmir Regular Rehbar-e-Taleem (JKRRT) Forum has threatened to launch a state vide protest next month.
A delegation comprising of JKRRT employees told KNS that the government has failed to release their salaries from past seven months due to which they are facing immense hardships.
They said that the government should release their pending salaries at earliest or should get ready to face agitation.
Muhammad Amin, one of the employees told KNS that he is the sole bread earner of his family and the government has left his family to face hardships.
He said thousands of teachers under SSA working in difficult conditions braving all odds are reeling under agonizing conditions and the people at the helm of affairs have shut their eyes over the plight of these RRT teachers. The irresponsible decision makers live in cozy offices and nation builders are left to suffer and their families are on the verge of starvation.
It is proving a herculean task for teachers to meet both ends.
They later appealed Chief Minister to look into the matter and redress their genuine grievance at earliest.
