SADDA, 30 November: After the protest of schoolteachers from Upper Kurram Agency, the teachers of Central and Lower Kurram have also announced boycott of their classes over not getting upgradation.
The protesting teachers are of the view that the government had announced upgradation of teachers in 2012 but the teachers of Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) are still deprived of it which is unjust. President of All City Teachers Association Muhammad Ayub told TNN that the teachers will boycott their classes till 7 December and will lock the schools and stage a sit-in in Islamabad if their demand of upgradation was not fulfilled.
“We ran from pillar to post for our right but no one helped us. We will stage dharna in Islamabad if our genuine demand was not fulfilled by 7 December. Our sit-in will continue till acceptance of our demand,” Mr Ayub said.
The schoolteachers of Upper Kurram are already boycotting their classes.
