Kathmandu, April 27:
Demanding the reinstatement of two teachers, the Institutional School Teachersâ€™ Union-Nepal(ISTU-N) today padlocked the Lalitpur-based New Millennium High School (NMHS).
A group of ISTU-N members misbehaved and padlocked the school, pressurising the management to extend the contract period of the two schoolteachers, the NMHS charged in a press release.
â€œIn telephonic conversation, ISTU-N members threatened to attack the school,â€ the NMHS charged. Condemning the act, the school management has called on the authorities concerned to take steps to stop such acts. â€œThe two teachers cannot be reinstated because their performance was not satisfactory,â€ the NMHS said.
Sahadev Thapa, Lalitpur district president of the ISTU-N, accused the school principal of hiring hooligans to beat up. â€œThe teachers were late for only a couple of days but the principal made it a big issue,â€ he said.
