DIMAPUR, March 17 - On the fourth day of their third phase agitation, Hindi teachers of Nagaland under aegis of All Nagaland Hindi Teachers� Union (ANHTU) called off their protest today following a written assurance by Nagaland Government to pay their two months� salary this month and to look into the remaining eight months� salary next month.

The aggrieved Hindi teachers staged a sit-in outside Nagaland Civil Secretariat complex for the second day today against the State Government for non-release of their pending salary.

ANHTU president Rometo Sema yesterday said the agitating teachers reiterated that they would not accept a few months� salary.

A government representative, reportedly deputed by Chief Secretary, met the agitating teachers on Thursday afternoon and offered two months� salary and assured to pay the rest next month. However, the teachers have reportedly declined the offer, saying that until they were given a written assurance, they would not compromise their agitation with a verbal assurance. To this, the government representative said he could not give any written assurance.

Meanwhile, ANHTU had also reportedly written a letter addressed to Principal Secretary School Education intimating its decision to continue the agitation at Nagaland Civil Secretariat.
