Teachers’ protest

BIRGUNJ: Teachers affiliated to the Parsa chapter of Nepal Teachers’ Union staged a protest rally at Ghantaghar in Birgunj on Monday, saying the Office of the Controller of Examinations (OCE) did not send them School Leaving Certificate (SLC) answer scripts for marking. “The OCE has been cold-shouldering us when it comes to marking the answer scripts for two years,” district Chairman Ram Chandra Pandit said. The agitating teachers also put forth several demands, including the implementation of the 11-point-agreement reached with the Ministry of Education and Sports last year. — HNS
