Aggrieved teachers of Nagaland on strike

By Correspondent

DIMAPUR, Oct 27 � Members of the Aggrieved Teachers Association Nagaland (ATAN) continued with their hunger strike for the third day today. They are demanding fulfillment of their three-point charter of demands from the State Government.

ATAN officials informed that they will be continuing with their protest since there has not been any positive response from the Government. There is no report of any untoward incident while the volunteers sitting on hunger strike remain determined and firm with no health complications so far.

The association�s three-point demand includes revocation of the Abeyance Order of the Cabinet and to honour the CM�s assurance to ATAN; annulment of show-cause notices of those who have already responded earlier and retained as per District Vigilance Commission (DVC) and implementation of the DVC final report approved by the Cabinet for retaining ATAN members in their original posting place and establishment.

ATAN officials had said yesterday that they have been having a series of meeting at the directorate level but said they want a written assurance from the State Cabinet or the Chief Minister and until such time, they would not call off their hunger strike.

It may be mentioned here that ATAN started their hunger strike in September last year but had suspended it after the State Government assured to look into the matter.

The district administration and police have been deployed to control the situation in the event of any emergency. A medical team has also been made available to deal with any possible health complications.
