The sit-in agitation was launched a day after the teachers carried out a protest march in Shillong demanding fair wages and the regularisation of jobs.

Despite giving assurances to work towards upgradation of ad-hoc schools in 2019, teachers stated that the state government has failed to take any concrete steps on the matter.

According to the teachers, the process of increase in salaries for ad-hoc school teachers has been under consideration for a long time.

However, no step has been taken by the government to improve the situation.
