Temporary teachers resume strike
Aug 3, 2017-
Amid preparations for the Teacher Service Commission examinations for permanent competition, around 2,500 temporary teachers have gathered in the Capital to pressure the government to guarantee their job security and announce new examinations schedule.
They have accused the Ministry of Education of not following the procedure for amending the act as per the four-point agreement reached between the two sides on June 23 and demanded a fresh amendment to the Education Act before the exam. However, Administrative Chief at the commission Dr Laxmi Raj Poudel said preparations for the August 19 examinations were underway and the open competition would be announced later. The temporary teachers resumed their hunger strike at Bhadrakali on Wednesday.
