PESHAWAR :  The negotiations between the protesting ad hoc teachers and Khyber  Pakhtunkhwa government failed, following which the teachers announced to surround the residence of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chief Imran Khan on October 17.

 

Over 600 ad hoc KP and FATA (Federally Administered

Tribal Areas) teachers continued protests, demanding

they be made permanent employees after their extended

contract ends on October 31.

 

On Wednesday, Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervaiz

Khattak met with the representative delegation. During

the meeting, he said that he agreed to take back the

decision regarding the formation of board of governors

in colleges.

 

The CM KP, however, said that the demands regarding

professional allowance and up gradation will put

additional burden on provincial government’s finances

and under the current circumstances are unacceptable.

 

Following which, the teachers denied to accept the terms

of the provincial government and announced to continue

the protests.

 

Teachers Action Committee In charge Jamshed Khan said

that the CM KP spoke harshly to them and left without

listening to their stance.

 

The protesting teachers while boycotting the election

and examination duties said that the protest against CM

KP’s behaviour outside Imran Khan’s residence would take

place.

 

The protesting teachers were hired in 2014 through a

test. Their contract was to end last year but they were

given an extension after carrying out a protest.

However, the extended date is expiring on October 31.
