Bhubaneswar: Opposing the State government’s alleged anti-teacher policy, Primary School Teachers’ Association in Odisha today warned to launch a strike from January 29, in case their three-point charter of demands is not fulfilled by January 27. The protest will be intensified after the ultimatum.

“Hundreds of teachers will congregate at the Lower PMG area here as a token of protest. We were earlier given a commitment by the State government in a Minister-level meeting that our demands will be considered soon, which has not been met. The Government will remain responsible if any untoward situation arises in the future due to agitation,” the outfit president Brahmananda Maharana said.

“We have been agitating since 2022 November over a three-point charter of demands. Equal pay for equal work, abolition of the new pension scheme and adoption of the old one instead, and counting the contractual teachers as regular staff by paying them six-year’s increment are our basic demands,” the senior office-bearer Maharana expressed while briefing mediapersons in a press conference.

Worth mentioning, the association previously resorted to cease-work agitation in September 2023.
