Hunger strike by Bishnupriya Manipuri Language teachers on June 5 in Silchar

Water has gone above the roof for the 149- strong Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers appointed in the LP schools of Assam. They are sitting on an indefinite hunger strike to draw attention of the state government to their plight on June 5, 2009 in front of the Silchar DC Office.

In a memorandum submitted to the Deputy Commissioner, Silchar, the Bishnupriya Manipuri Language Teachers Association, intimated that due to failure of the government to regularize their services they are taking this course of action.

The Teacher’s Association has submitted similar memorandums to the Deputy Commissioners of Karimganj and Hailakandi districts.

In 2001, altogether 149 Bishnupriya Manipuri Language teachers were appointed in LP schools in three districts (Cachar, Hailakandi and Karimganj) of Barak Valley. But they have not been receiving any remuneration as their services were not regularized.

The Bishnupriya Manipuri Gana Sangram Parishad and Bishnupriya Manipuri Students Association had extended their support to the Bishnupriya Manipuri Language Teachers Association’s decision.
