Punjab internee teachers cry for salaries

GUJRANWALA, Sept 26: Around two dozen women teachers of government primary schools who were recruited under the National Internship Programme (NIP) have protested non-payment of their salaries for past three months and termed it an oppressed act on part of the government. They demanded that they should immediately be paid.

Parents said that the Punjab government had recruited 29 Master's degree holder women of Gujranwala district under the NIP and later deployed them in girls primary schools through the education department three months ago.

They said that the girls only in Gujranwala district were not being paid since their recruitment while their counterparts in Lahore, Multan, Faisalabad and Rawalpindi districts were being paid regularly.

They said that during the past three months, a few teachers had left the job after getting disappointed over non-payment of salaries on time.

They urged the Punjab government and education department to pay them their wages and redress their agony, particularly during the holy month of Ramazan. Dawn
