Teachers and employees of non-monthly pay order (non-MPO) educational institutions continued their protests for the fourth consecutive day in front of the Jatiya Press Club in the capital yesterday (Saturday). The protesters are demanding that all non-MPO institutions be nationalised and included in the MPO list. They also want to meet Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. The protesters, under the banner of Non-MPO Educational Institutions Teachers’ and Employees’ Federation, vowed to continue their agitation in Dhaka till their demands were met.

Federation general secretary Binoy Bhushan Roy said, “If the education minister gives a specific assurance on the issue after discussing it with the Prime Minister, the non-MPO teachers will go back to their classes. Otherwise, the protests on the streets will continue.”

He said: “We had to go back from the streets after getting an assurance from the government last year, but eight months later, our demands have not been fulfilled yet.”

Earlier, on June 25 last year, the non-MPO teachers started a hunger-strike demanding enlistment of their institutions under the MPO. After 17 days, in July last year, they withdrew their demonstration after an assurance from the government that their demands would be addressed.

As their demands have remained unfulfilled in the past eight months, they again launched their agitation on Wednesday. Meanwhile, some of the teachers have fallen ill on the spot. Shobha Rani, teacher of Sonartari Nimno Maddhomik School in Khulna, had to be taken to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on account of her illness. Federation president Golam Mahmudunnabi Dollar said, “Her condition deteriorated last night. She was sent to the DMCH.”
