Turbat – Haqooq Teacher’s Association (HTA) Kech protested against delay in upgradation of teachers outside Turbat Press Club, on Monday.
HTA is the association of the teachers recruited under Aghaz-e-Haqooq-e-Balochistan Package.
Protestors were carrying placards that read slogans against bureaucracy for delaying the upgradation of package teachers into BPS-17 scale.
“We are serving in BPS-16 for last three years and government has still not fulfilled its promise of promoting package teachers to BPS-17,” Shah Jahan, President of Kech Chapter of HTA, told Balochistan Point. He further added, “If our demands are not fulfilled then we will intensify our protests.”
Government has not fulfilled the promise of upgrading package tecahers from BPS-16 to BPS-17, even after three years.
