Tynsong sees hidden agenda in ad hoc teachers continuing protest

Shillong, July 1: Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong has claimed there may be some “hidden agenda” behind the decision of the ad hoc teachers to continue with their indefinite sit-in-demonstration even after the state government assured to enhance the lump sum grant to government aided schools.

A delegation of the adhoc school teachers under the banner Federation of School Teachers of Meghalaya (FASTOM) met Tynsong, who requested them to call off the protest as the government will take a final decision on their demands – which include enhancing the salary of adhoc teachers by Rs 18,000 and 5% yearly increment – in the third cabinet meeting to be held very soon.

However, the FASTOM is yet to consider the request and has continued with the indefinite protest.
