ITANAGAR, Aug 10: With no assertion coming from the State Government to look into their one point demand for job regularization even after completion of three day-long sit-in protest, the agitating Samagra Shiksha Abhiyaan (SSA) teachers on Friday vowed to return back with an indefinite non-cooperation movement that will commence from August 16 to September 4 to press for their demands.

“We are compelled to go ahead with the non-cooperation movement as the state government failed to fulfill its promises and remained indifferent to our one point demand for regularization of SSA teachers,” lamented President, All Arunachal Samagra Shiksha Abhiyaan Teachers Association (CB-AASSATA) ,Tarak Agung Tarh.

He also warned of intensifying the stir if the government continues its 'step motherly' treatment towards the genuine demand of the association saying that they will not step back until their demand is fulfilled.

The association expressed concern that it’s not teachers alone who are affected by the prolonged stalemate but the academic activities in educational institutions across the state are also severely hampered.

Stating that the association is sensitive to the impact on thousands of students due to the ongoing protest, Agung said that the government must own full responsibility for the impasse and questioned "how a teacher can teach their students under such harsh conditions where there is no job security and without any salary".

The association further informed that during the non-cooperation movement no SSA teacher will attend their duties or partake in any activities of the government. It informed that the third phase of movement will be in the form of indefinite hunger strike if their demands are not heeded within stipulated time.
