Safety provision: Ban proposed on teachers’ protests during work hours

Published: March 3, 2015


On the recommendation of law-enforcement agencies, the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government is planning to impose a ban on political activities of schoolteachers during work hours.

According to an official statement issued on Monday, a letter sent by law-enforcement agencies asked the K-P government to impose a ban on protests and strikes conducted by teachers during school hours.

The letter added the purpose of the ban was to protect both students and teachers because Peshawar is a vulnerable district and any untoward incident can occur during such activities in educational institutes.
