KHAR, January 14: Teachers of community schools in Bajaur Agency have been facing problems because they say they have not received salaries for the last six months.
Speaking to TNN, several teachers said the suspension of salaries had affected their children’s education and that they cannot cope with their household expenditures. They said they would have no option but to protest if they were not released their salaries.
“Our people have rendered numerous sacrifices. During the ongoing war, my three sisters have died. We are facing poverty, unemployment and other problems and demanded the government release our salaries,” stated one of the teachers.
