Shillong, Dec 17: The All Meghalaya SSA School Teachers Association (AMSSASTA) held a sit-in demonstration on Thursday demanding the immediate release of the four months’ salaries, regularization of their posts, and the release of pending arrears.

Speaking to reporters here on Thursday, the general secretary of the association, Defender S. Lamare said, “The government should release our four months salaries if it could not release five months’ salaries. The government should regularize our SSA posts and we have pressured the government to release the 8 months pending arrears from July 2016- February 2017”.

The association has demanded the immediate release of four months’ salaries from August-November 2020.

Lamare said that the teachers are facing many difficulties over and above the medical problems which create a lot of problems due to the non-receipt of the salary. He said, “From our side, we are very sad regarding the incapability of the government”.

He said that the Education Minister has informed the association that the state government is still awaiting the funds from the Central Government.

Asked, he said that there are 12541 SSA teachers in the state.  The representatives of the AMSSASTA met the authorities of the Education department and will decide on the further course of action later.

It may be mentioned that another group of SSA teachers, the Meghalaya SSA Schools Association (MSSASA) central body launched the Postcard Campaign to Prime Minister’s Office from December 15, 2020 onwards through offline and online mode to protest against the Ministry of Education, DSE&L, Government of India for delaying the release of funds.
