Will storm Secretariat on March 2, if govt fails to pay salaries by Feb 28: MSSASA

The association informed that they have called off the non-cooperation movement, launched in December 2021, and the ball is now on government’s court

SHILLONG: 

Irked at the government’s apathy towards the release of their pending salaries, the Meghalaya SSA School Teachers’ Association (MSSASA), on February 22, threatened to storm the secretariat if the state government failed to release their pending salary by February 28.

“We have decided to give a two-week ultimatum to the state government to release our pending salary by February 28, failing which we will storm the secretariat on March 2. In this march, all the SSA teachers across the state will take part as a mark of protest against the adamant attitude of the state government to release the pending salary,” said president of the association, Aristotle Rymbai, on Tuesday.

Informing that the decision was taken during an emergency meeting of the association’s central body on Tuesday, Rymbai said, “We have decided to call off the non-cooperation movement from today but will wait for the state government to release the pending five-month salaries till the said date before launching the march,” he said. The non-cooperation movement was launched in December 21, last year.

Rymbai said that the MSSA has been demanding the immediate release of additional fund Rs 104 crores for the State Project Director’s office to pay their salaries pending for five months. Unfortunately, there has been no response from the government till date, he added.
