60,000 Sikshya Sahyaks to go on leave en masse from Nov 11

Bhubaneswar, October 20: More than 60,000 Sikshya Sahyaks have decided to go on leave en masse from November 11 in protest against the state government's apathy in resolving their issues.

The teachers have been demanding regular teacher status, pay band of Rs 29,300-34,800 and ESI facility among many other issues.

Decision to this effect was taken in a meeting attended by representatives of the association coming from all the 30 districts and 314 blocks of the State on Sunday.

“The Government is sitting idle on our requests fording us to resort to agitation. Hence, the teachers have decided to embark on indefinite strike if the government fails to hike their salaries as per the norms," said Odisha Sikshya Sahyak Association (OSSA) president Sunil Kumar Pradhan.
