First Published: 1st October, 2022 16:13 IST

The government had earlier during the meeting assured to set up a high-powered committee to look into the demand of the 1,166 ad hoc teachers.

Suspense continues to loom large over the protesting ad hoc teachers as they decided to continue with their hunger strike.

The decision comes in after the general body of the ad hoc teachers could not decide on whether to accept the decision that was taken in the meeting between the All Nagaland Ad Hoc Teachers Group and the Commissioner and Secretary, School Education.

The government had earlier during the meeting assured to set up a high-powered committee to look into the demand of the 1,166 ad hoc teachers.

Meanwhile today, a crucial meeting will be held to reach a consensus on the assurance given to the ANATG representatives by the government.

The protesting Ad Hoc teachers of the 2015 batch had launched an indefinite hunger strike on Friday to press for the regularisation of their posts.

The Ad hoc teachers have been holding a silent sit-in protest outside the Nagaland Civil Secretariat in Kohima demanding the state government regularisation of their service. Today is the 6th day of their protest.

The teachers have been relentlessly demanding regularisation of their services while the education department maintained that it is constrained by a court order to act on the regularisation.
