Peshawar police fire tear gas, baton charge govt teachers

Primary school teachers staged protest against the PTI govt for its delaying tactics regarding their promotion

PESHAWAR: Peshawar police fired tear gas and baton-charged government teachers protesting against the PTI government for its delaying tactics regarding their promotion to the next grade.

Thousands of primary school teachers of Khyber Pakthunkhwa staged a protest demonstration in front of the provincial assembly’s building on Khyber Road and demanded promotion to BPS-14, 15, 16, and 17 grades and an increase in allowances.

Holding placards and banners inscribed with different slogans in favour of their demands, the protestors said that PTI government that came into power in the name of change in 2013 had failed to address their problems.

The speakers said delay in promotion cases were creating disparity among the teachers community of KP and demanded PTI Chairman Imran Khan, Chief Minister KP Mahmood Khan and Education Minister, Atif Khan to address their problems as quickly as possible. They said that teachers would boycott schools if their demands were not addressed.
