Guest teachers protest against AAP govt say 'only announcements, no implementation'

Scores of guest teachers staged a protest on Wednesday against the AAP government outside North Delhi's Chhatrasal Stadium as they were miffed with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal about their lack of increments.

The agitating teachers blocked the Ring Road leading to Chhatrasal Stadium where an event was organised by the Delhi government to encourage guest teachers to perform better.

Last week, the Kejriwal government had proposed to increase the salaries of guest teachers by up to 90% and the file pertaining to the matter was sent to Lt Governor Najeeb Jung for his approval.

A section of teachers stood from their seats and started leaving when the Chief Minister started addressing the teachers.

Some of them got agitated when the Chief Minister apprised them that the file related to an increment in their salaries is pending with the LG office.

"We are just being assured by the government for a long time that salaries of guest teachers will soon be increased. Government just makes announcements, but doesn't implement them," a teacher said.
