JAMRUD, 12 December: All Fata teachers’ Association on Saturday here staged a protest demonstration to press the government to accept their longstanding demand of scale promotion and service structure.

Apart from male teachers, female teachers also participated in the demonstration. They gathered outside the Jamrud Press Club and chanted slogans in favor of their demands.

The protesting teachers were of the view that teachers working against the same posts in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa were granted scale promotion by the provincial government but they were not provided their rights.

“”The provincial government approved service structure for the teachers of the settle areas and granted them scale promotion in 2012 but the same is being refused to us,” said a teacher.

“We are equally qualified but we have been deprived of the scale promotion for the last 20 years,” a female participant of the demonstration told TNN.

Another teacher said that Fata teachers were more deserving as they have been performing their duties in comparatively more dangerous situations.

The teachers vowed that if their demands were not accepted, they would continue their protest movement.
