Nepal teachers union calls off 10-day long protest

Soon after the Nepal Education Ministry agreed to hold talks with agitating teachers, the Nepal Republican Education Front (NREF) on Sunday called off the strike in the Himalayan nation.

Kathmandu, May 27 : Soon after the Nepal Education Ministry agreed to hold talks with agitating teachers, the Nepal Republican Education Front (NREF) on Sunday called off the strike in the Himalayan nation.

NERF President Gunaraj Lohani said the shutdown would be called off with effect from 5 pm on Sunday in response to the Education Ministry's initiative to discuss and resolve the issues.

According to Nepalnews, Lohani is reported to have said that the government had responded positively to the teachers' demands.

A meeting is likely with the Ministry officials later in the evening.

Earlier today, the Nepal Education Ministry asked the agitating teachers to end the shutdown immediately and come to the negotiation table to resolve grievances.

Earlier, the teachers' union had declined the offer of talks with a joint-secretary-led Government's committee, asking for a ministerial-level team to hold talks.

The shutdown had crippled normal life in Nepal.

Marketplaces and businesses remained closed, while normal traffic was off the roads.

At least 7.8 million students of over 35,000 schools across the country have been affected by the NREF mooted ten-day old shutdown of schools across Nepal.

Maoist-affiliated All Nepal National Independent Students Union (Revolutionary) and a few teachers unions have supported the NERF called shutdown in schools.

On May 17, teachers' union forced the indefinite closure of over 35,000 state-run and private schools.

The protesting teachers have been demanding that all private educational institutions provide appointment letters and salary at par with the government teachers.

They have also demanded that the government annul the Company Act, which the protesting teachers say, is encouraging the owners of the schools to make money instead of providing service to the people.
