Delayed salaries: Longkhim teachers launch protest

Government school teachers under SDEO Longkhim under Tuensang district have launched protest against delay in payment of salaries and also to press for their two-point charter of demands.
In a press release, graduate teacher, Yotingla Sangtam, on behalf of aggrieved teachers, said that the aggrieved teachers took out silent protest march at Longkhim on March 13, 2023 and affirmed to boycott classes until the department fulfilled charter of demands, which include disciplinary actions against “erring officials” of SDEO Longkhim and proper functioning of SDEO office Longkhim.
The aggrieved teachers stated that SDEO Longkhim was established about five years ago and total bifurcation from SDEO Tuensang on March 1, 2022.
Since then, the aggrieved teachers said the office was still not fully functional, adding that they were facing immense hardships because of the indifferent attitude of the SDEO staff.
They said that delay in release of salaries and arrears had been a major issue. They claimed that the “erring bill assistant and cashier” of SDEO Logkhim do not release teachers’ salary on time causing untold hardships to the aggrieved teachers.
Despite serving ultimatums, the aggrieved teachers said the response has always been negative. Therefore, the aggrieved teachers said they have resorted to the democratic form of agitation.
Failure to address their charter of demands, the aggrieved teachers said they would be forced to continue with agitation and the concerned office and staffs would be held solely responsible in case of any untoward incident.
