Teachers' rally against 'anti-education' policies
Lahore: Teachers across Punjab on Friday took part in an
anti-government protest at The Mall and demanded the termination of
Punjab School Education's Secretary Aslam Kamboh. Punjab Teachers
Union's (PTU) Hafiz Ghulam Mohiyuddin said the Punjab government had
illegally recruited thousands of teachers under Kamboh's supervision.
More than 1,000 schoolteachers gathered in front of Masjid-e-Shuhada at
The Mall and marched towards the Punjab Assembly, carrying banners and
posters with anti-Punjab government sentiments.
The teachers shouted
slogans against the government and Kamboh and demanded the latter's
termination. The protest was organised by various teachers'
organistions, and their representatives led the rally. PTU President
Mohiyuddin addressed the rally at Charing Cross and said Kamboh had
challenged the dignity of teachers by calling them "useless" in a
letter. He said teachers across the province were disheartened by this
behaviour and demanded the Punjab CM take action against Kamboh, as he
was also responsible for the illegal recruitments of teachers.
Mohiyuddin said there were anti-corruption cases registered against
Kamboh but he was still present in the office. Kamboh said that there was no logic behind the protest as the accusations against
him were false and fabricated. He said the teachers were riled because
of a recent policy, under which a head holding a graduate degree would
receive an added bonus of Rs 500. He added that most of the present
heads only hold matriculation degrees. "The entire issue is over Rs
500," Kamboh added.
