LANDIKOTAL, Dec 14: Teachers on Dec 11 staged a protest rally against the delay in issuance of notification on scale upgrading by the federal government.
The All Teacher Association, Khyber Agency chapter, had organised the rally. The local leaders of almost all political parties, students and teachers of state-run schools joined the protest. Holding placards, the protesters marched from Landikotal Press Club to the Bacha Khan Chowk.
Speaking on the occasion, Jamiat-i-Islami, Fata deputy chief Zarnoor Afridi, and Awami National Party Landikotal head Shah Hussain Shinwari said that the Fata Secretariat should issue notification of teachers’ upgradation. They said the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government had upgraded the scale of teachers a year ago, but the teachers in Fata were deprived of it.
