To protest non-payment of salary, the teachers had also taken out a rally on June 8 last .

Representatives of the teachers have also met Chief Minister and Education Minister regarding non-payment of salary.

The Govt had assured the teachers of releasing their pending salary within June.

However, no positive response has been coming from the Govt so far, Prakasana said .

He further said that when the teachers went to meet the Director of RMSA, the office was found locked due to flood .

As such, the teachers are compelled to launch pen-down stir from tomorrow, he said .

There are many RMSA teachers who are posted in interior areas where there is no teachers’ quarters.

The woes of these teachers increased manifold due to non-payment of salary since November last year, he said while adding that the Govt should know the sacrifices made by the teachers.
