Tanahun, June 28:

Many school teachers in Tanahun district have not been paid for four months. And as the summer break began from Sunday, they will be without pay for another month or so. Out of 392 primary- and 137 lower- and secondary-level teachers in the district, only a few have received their pay. The teachers were not given their salary as the District Education Office (DEO), , failed to get the amount required to pay the salary. They have gathered in Damauli in hopes of getting their pay. They are planning to either go to the bank or the DEO for their pay.
