Non-MPO teachers continue demo for fourth day

Teachers and employees of non-MPO educational institutions gathered in front of Jatiya Press Club for the fourth consecutive day yesterday, demanding enlistment into the Monthly Pay Order .

They took position in the area since Wednesday, demanding intervention of the prime minister in this regard, said a press release.

Leaders of “Non-MPO Educational Institution Teachers and Employees Federation” said their appeal is logical and humanitarian, and they believe that the PM is their only hope.

About seven demonstrators fell sick yesterday, and had to receive primary medical treatment.

Besides, Soyelen Chandro Mojumder, 50, who suffered a stroke during the demonstration on Thursday, is taking treatment at the CCU of National Heart Foundation Hospital.

Earlier on June 25, 2018, teachers and employees of non-MPO educational institutions started a hunger strike demanding enlistment of their institutions under the MPO facility.

On July 11, they called off their hunger strike after getting government assurance of their demand being fulfilled.

As their demand remained unfulfilled in the last eight months, they again started their programme on Wednesday.
