The teachers’ association met on December 22 and decided to call off the strike.

Earlier, after numerous attempts to pressure the Meghalaya state government to release their 5 months dues, since August, the teachers had decided to hold a 2-day hunger strike in front of the homes of the chief minister Conrad Sangma and Tura MP Agatha Sangma.

The decision to call off the agitation, the teachers added, came after two months’ salaries were released.

“We have called off our hunger strike for now. However, our 3 months’ salaries are still pending and as such we will pick up our protest in the month of January if the state government does not release these,” said publicity secretary Bunbunbirth Marak.

The AGHSSASTA further expressed their gratitude to AHAM for standing by them during their “time of strife”.
