CM directs authorities to release salaries of SSA teachers before Eid


Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday directed the authorities to release the pending salaries of SSA teachers before Eid-ul-Fitr.

The CM made the decision while chairing a high-level meeting regarding the issues of SSA teachers who have been protesting since last week demanding the salaries before the festive occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr.

The teachers had threatened to intensify the protest demonstrations across the state and observe the Eid as ‘black day’ if their salaries were not released ahead of the festival.

“Chaired a meeting regarding the salaries of SSA teachers to find a swift resolution to this issue,” Mehbooba Mufti tweeted.

The meeting, which continued for an hour, was attended by Minister for Education Choudary Zulfikar, Minister for Finance Altaf Bukhari, Minister for Technical Education Imran Raza Ansari, Chief Secretary BB Vyas, Secretary Education Farooq Ahmad Shah and Principal Secretary to CM Rohit Kansal.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
