Teachers stage protests

KATHMANDU: Teachers affiliated to Nepal Educational Republic Front (NERF) on Thursday protested against the government by lying down on the road in front of the Ministry of Education in Keshar Mahal.

They lay down for around two hours pressing the government to address their demands. Teachers have been staging protest programmes since the past few days demanding the implementation of the agreements signed between the then government and them. They would come up with more severe protest programmes if their demands were ignored, warned RP Bhandari, chairman of NERF.
