SrinagarHundreds of Jammu and Kashmir Rehbar-e-Taleem (ReT) teachers Forum Saturday staged a massive protest here in Press Enclave Srinagar seeking fulfillment of their multiple demands.
The ReT teachers disrupted traffic for hours and registered massive protest amid rains. The protesting teachers also marched towards DSEK office where they held a sit-in there amid anti government slogans.
They demanded streamlining of salaries of SSA teachers, implementation of transfer policy and regularization policy.
They said that MHRD has clubbed various schemes like SSA, RMSA, RUSA and reduced the funds that have affected Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan teachers.
Government must delink the SSA teachers salary so that they will get salaries on monthly basis, said Farooq Ahmed Tantary, chairman of the forum.
He added despite court rulings there has been no implementation of transfer policy.
They threatened to stir agitation and lock down schools in case government fails to meet their demands.
