Chandigarh:The Democratic organisation of SSA teachers (DOSSAT) under the banner of Joint Action Committee(JAC) who are sitting on hunger strike since March 6, have decided to continue the hunger strike till the salary of all SSA teachers is not released.
In a press statement, the members said that the association prior to sitting on hunger strike approached all the concerned officers of UT administration and even Member Parliament Kirron Kher but in all went in vain and now they will be sitting on an indefinite strike.
Meanwhile, the teachers have been sitting on hunger strike in the parking of DSE Sector 9, Chandigarh for not releasing the salary of 3 months to the 1028 SSA teachers and around 250 other allied staff of SSA ( Total around 1300).
The MHRD have already written to the Chandigarh Administration to release the salary out of state budget and it can be released from salary head of UT as it comes to know that budget in salary head of UT is available. The teachers’ apathy increased much folds in the month of March as children of 1300 teachers will be deprived off the admission fee, books, etc. for the new session of 2017-18.
All most all teachers are staying on rent in city and owners have also asked them to vacate the houses immediately and worst is that most of them have no money to feed their families.
“We request the Chandigarh administration especially worthy MP Kirron Kher and worthy Advisor to look into the matter personally and help the SSA teachers by releasing the salary of last three months so that children and families of SSA teachers may not starve,” said. Ranbir Rana Secretary, Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan Teachers Welfare Association(SSATWA), UT.
