Government fails release pending salaries of SSA head teachers

Srinagar, March 08: Even after more than 13-14 months, government has failed to release the pending salaries of Sarva Shikha Abhiyan (SSA) head teachers, leaving the teachers in distress.
A delegation of SSA head-teachers under on Sunday said that government has failed to fulfill their pending demands.
As per the delegation, earlier they were appointed by Service Selection Board (SSB) and were promoted as Masters and Head teachers in SSA schools, but have been ignored by the government.
Mohammad Yousnis, a head teacher told JKNS said that there are around 5000 head teachers which were promoted as head teachers or masters in SSA schools but the government has failed to release their pending salaries.“They are unable to pay the expenses of family and some even cannot afford the fee of children, but it seems government has turned deaf ears to the issue,” he said.
He said there is no government policy for them and which is forcing teachers to come on roads. If the administration fails to resolve the demands of teachers, they will start indefinite strike throughout the J&K, Younis said.
Earlier, governor led administration assured that issues of SSA head teachers would be resolved but things have remained unchanged on the ground.
He said they have continuously worked for the genuine issues of head teachers and they will continue try to highlight such issues. They requested the Lieutenant Governor Girish Chandra Murmu to take cognizance of the matter so that they have sigh of relief. (JKNS)
