Non-MPO teachers call hunger strike

Staff Reporter, Dhaka

Teachers and employees of the non-government educational institutions yesterday announced hunger strike for an indefinite period for failing to meet Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina over their demands of stopping the MPO policy 2018 which they call ‘inconsistent’.

Leaders of Non-MPO Shikkha Protishthan Shikkhak Karmachari Federation said as per their pre-announced programme of long march towards prime minister’s office, they began the march at around 11:30 am from Jatiya Press Club. But thousands of teachers and employees faced police resistance in front of the high court road as law enforcers raised barricade there preventing them not to move forward.

They had huge altercation with the police. General Secretary of the Federation Principal Binoy Bhushan Roy said condemned such behaviour of police and returned to in front of Jatiya Press Club. Later in the afternoon, the leaders announced hunger strike for an indefinite period.

President and general secretary of the federation said, “We would continue our sit-in programme until we get any message to meet prime minister. Our programme will continue on Friday and prayers would be held after Jumu'ah prayers. After the prayer we will start our hunger strike. We will continue it until death.”

The teachers and employees of the non-government educational institutions demanded stop of MPO policy 2018 as they have find it inconsistent and discriminatory if implemented for the announcement of Monthly Pay Order (MPO) facilities for the non-government educational institutions across the country.  They have started such programme when the government is on the verge of the announcement of the MPO facilities.
