Teachers demand pay raise

Punjab Teachers Protest ISLAMABAD, May (Daily Times): The Punjab Teachers Union (PTU) staged a protest in front of the Parliament House to demand increase in salaries and condemn the government's privatisation policy.
The PTU is the largest teachers' organization in the country. Protestors condemned the government's decision to privatise over 2,000 primary, middle and high schools. They said the government had blocked their allowances after their announcement and gave them no salary raise over the years. They demanded that contractual teachers be regularised and given 15 percent increase in allowances while senior permanent teachers be promoted.

The PTU president said vacancies in education department should be filled and politics should not be involved in affairs of educational institutions. He said teachers would launch a nationwide protest if their demands were not met in the coming budget.

"The dream of 'educated Punjab' cannot be realised until provincial teachers were given the same facilities as set for federal teachers," said Rana Liaqat, a PTU member. Aslam Ghumman, Ghulam Mustufa Riaz, Haji Nazar Muhammad, Qazi Abdur Rauf, Chaudhary Muhammad Sarfraz, Mian Amjad Ali, Abdul Qayyum Rahi and Raja Ibrar also spoke on the occasion.
