KATHMANDU: Temporary school teachers on Tuesday staged a brief sit-in in front of the Prime Minister’s official residence at Baluwatar, putting forth various demands.

They have alleged that the Education Act (eighth amendment) failed to address their demands.

Their demands include internal competition should be held and those failing to register for permanent status be provided with medical treatment facility.

Likewise, they have demanded that those temporary teachers who have retired on age-limit should be provided with gratuity and medical treatment facility.

Chairman of the Temporary Teachers Struggle Committee Nirendra Kunwar said that the Education Act should be amended at the earliest.
