Meghalaya Ad-hoc teachers meets CM Sangma; puts forward their demands

Chief Minister Conrad Sangma took cognizance of the demands put forward by the Ad Hoc teachers.

Representatives of the Federation of All School Teachers of Meghalaya or FASTOM today met Chief Minister Conrad Sangma and pressed for their demands to be fulfilled.

During the meeting, Chief Minister Conrad Sangma took cognizance of the demands put forward by the Ad Hoc teachers.

Chief Minister Sangma also assured the FASTOM representatives that the government is working on a solution and a decision will be taken within three sittings of the cabinet.

This indeed is a big development as it was only yesterday when the FASTOM had decided to go ahead with its indefinite rally from today.

It may be mentioned that the FASTOM had announced an indefinite strike following the Meghalaya government expressing its inability to give in to the demand by the teachers’ body for an enhancement of Rs 18,000 and an increment of 5 percent annually.
