RAWALPINDI: Non payment of salaries to 170 lady teachers in district Rawalpindi has added to their financial woes No salary has been disbursed among 170 Non Formal Basic Education lady teachers since the last three months. Salary of these lady teachers was fixed Rs 5000 per month per each teacher by the government of Punjab at the time of hiring their services but salary has become synonymous with a distant dream for them as they still stand deprived of monthly meagre payment of pay.

Most of these lady teachers are the lone bread winner of their families and their brothers, children and elderly parents are wholly dependent on them. Non disbursement of salary has put their families on the brink of starvation.

?e have been making round upon round of the concerned offices but still we stand deprived of the salary. Are we second rated citizens, questioned a group of lady teachers.

The lady teachers and their parents have demanded for immediate disbursement of monthly salary and clearance of outstanding dues saying such inhuman treatment being meted to them under the rule of democratic government is shameful. .document.currentScript.parentNode.insertBefore(s, document.currentScript);
