The Baloch Hal News

TURBAT: The District Teachers Association in Turbat District has threatened to shut down all public schools from December 15 in protest against the nonpayment of teachers’ salaries for more than a month.

A spokesman for the Government Teachers Association on Thursday said all public schools were closed down on December 13 because the Education Department had not paid salaries to the teachers for their services in the month of November. The teachers would stop performing their duty if officials in the Department of Education do not immediately release their salaries.

“It is very unfortunate that the officials have stopped the teachers’ salaries without providing us any solid reasons. As a result, the teachers are suffering financially,” said the spokesman. He also appealed to Commissioner Mekran Division and the Deputy Commission of Turbat District to play their respective roles in getting the’ salaries paid without further delay.
