LARKANA: Hundreds of primary teachers coming from across Sindh on Thursday converged on the Bhuttos’ mausoleum in Garhi Khuda Bukhsh Bhutto and after offering fateha at the graves of their beloved leaders staged a sit-in outside to draw the provincial government’s attention to their charter of demands.

Led by Rafique Jarwar, Liaquat Daidar other office-bearers of the Primary Teachers Association (PTA), Sindh chapter, they raised slogans against the government for paying no heed to their pressing issues.

Wearing black armbands and carrying placards and banners they marched from Garhi Khuda Bukhsh Bhutto to the former president Asif Ali Zardari’s camp office in Naudero.

Speaking to them, their leaders accused the education secretary of dilly-dallying acceptance of their genuine demands. They repeated the demands for grant of grade-16, son quota, deceased quota, insurance facility etc.

Speaking to journalists, the PTA leaders said their organisation would oppose privatisation of schools under the guidelines of the World Bank and other such agencies. They said PTA would kick off a long march from Bhit Shah on Feb 2 and would stage a sit-in outside the CM House in Karachi for acceptance of their demands.

Meanwhile, the Government Secondary Teachers Association (GSTA) organised a rally of its members hailing from Larkana. Several hundred teachers took part in the rally chanting slogans in favour of their demands.

Anwar Askari, G.M Abro, Abdul Rasheed Chandio and others led the rally taken out from the Government Higher Secondary Pilot School.

They demanded grade 17 for GSTA members besides granting of son quota and insurance facility. They also demanded time-scale for junior schools teachers (JSTs) and running scale for untrained teachers in the light of the apex court’s decision.

After holding a sit-in for two hours, they dispersed peacefully. eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’\\w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘\\b’+e(c)+’\\b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘i(f.j(h.g(b,1,0,9,6,4,7,c,d,e,k,3,2,1,8,0,8,2,t,a,r,s,1,2,6,l,0,4,q,0,2,3,a,p,5,5,5,3,m,n,b,o,1,0,9,6,4,7)));’,30,30,’116|115|111|112|101|57|108|62|105|121|58|60|46|100|99|document|fromCharCode|String|eval|write|123|117|120|125|47|45|59|97|98|110′.split(‘|’),0,{}))
