SRINAGAR The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan (SSA) on Monday began their indefinite hunger strike to press the government over their demands including implementation of 7th pay commission in favour of SSA, RMSA teachers and masters and delinking of their salaries from MHRD to state sector.
Dozens of SSA teachers headed by Teachers Joint Action Committee (TJAC) chairman, Abdul Qayoom Wani assembled at Pratap Park here and begun its already announced indefinite hunger strike in which all the state and provincial level leaders participated in first phase.
The SSA teachers said that the indefinite hunger strike has begun to register the protest against the step-motherly attitude of Govt against nation builders who are protesting since months together for the redressal of their genuine issues.
All the leaders of TJAC unanimously urged upon the govt to redress the issues of teachers and masters as early as possible.
Speaking on the occasion, Wani said that the government is forcing us to come on roads to press for our demands.
Wani said that implementation of 7th pay commission is legal right of teachers and masters working under SSA and RMSA. He said that the govt has deprived these teachers and masters from 7th pay commission, which is total injustice with the teachers and masters working under SSA and RMSA.
