Non-government teachers continued their sit-in program for the third consecutive day on Tuesday in the capital – demanding their inclusion in the Monthly Pay Order (MPO).

A group of teachers under the banner of Non-MPO Educational Institutions' Teachers and Employees Federation gathered in front of the Jatiya Press Club around 10am for their pre-declared sit-in program which was earlier foiled by police on Monday.

The teachers staged the demonstration as Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid did not take any initiative to fulfill their demand, said Golam Mahmudunnabi Dollar, president of the federation.

Even, Finance Minister AMA Muhith in the proposed budget for the next fiscal year did not make any specific declaration about their enlistment for the subvention, he added.

During the demonstration, the teachers also declared to reject the education minister's assurance where he said the non-government teachers will be gradually enlisted for the subvention even if there is no allocation in the budget.

Asim Kumar Baral, an agitated teacher, told UNB that the education minister assured them several times and it is the 27th time they came to Dhaka to raise their demand.

"We thought that the finance minister would allocate some budget for us but it is so frustrating that he did not even mention the issue in the proposed budget," he added.

Federation’s General Secretary Binoy Bhushon Roy and other federation leaders were also present during the sit-in program.

The teachers, who called off their last round of movement following Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's assurance, have started their latest movement on Sunday amid police intervention.
