Keneikhrielie Soukhrie, a representative of the aggrieved Hindi teachers of Konia, told this correspondent that there was no positive response from the government so far. They are hopeful for a positive outcome with the call for a meeting by the Director of School Education, he stated. He also said around 20-30 representatives of the all Nagaland aggrieved Hindi teachers will be attending the meeting.
The All Nagaland College Students Union (ANCSU) has appealed to the State government and the department concerned to immediately release six months pending salaries of Hindi teachers.
In a release today , the ANCSU said the students will be the victims and their career will be at stake if the government and department concerned fail to address the grievances of the Hindi teachers at the earliest.
