Continuing with their phase wise agitation against non payment of their salary by the government, the Nagaland RMSA Teachers Association (NRMSATA -2016) on Thursday began phase-II agitation (poster campaign) in Kohima.
Through the poster campaign, the aggrieved teachers have send out a clear message to the state government about their frustration and struggle.
The campaign held at certain locations –– at the exit gate of the chief minister, entry gate of the minister school education, secretariat, DoSE and town area –– asked the government change its attitude and also questioned the minister school education for failing them.
Some of the posters that were pasted across the state capital read: “Without agitation no salary”, “change your attitude government of Nagaland”, “hon’ble education minister, you have failed us”, “we are tired of government lip service”, “paying our salary on time is the fulfilment of our potential”, “delay is the deadliest form of denial”, “labourers deserves their wages”, “justice denied is a crime” etc.
Meanwhile, even as the agitation entered fourth day, there was no response from the state government or the responsible department.
Speaking to Nagaland Post, NRMSATA president, Renbomo Patton, said the teachers were shocked at the silence of the department officials, saying their anticipation for a meeting did not happen till date.
NRMSATA president said while the teachers were carrying out poster campaign today, they came across the advisor to CM, Lalthara, who reportedly assured to convey the message to the chief minister.
Expressing hope that there would be possible solution, NRMSATA president said the teachers would wait till next Monday. The poster campaign would be held till April 24, which would be followed by sit in protest at the secretariat.
It may be mentioned that NRMSATA-2013 had on Wednesday announced to start boycotting all government secondary classes throughout the state from April 20, 2017 as a mark of protest against government’s failure to release five months pending salary.
