20 sacked teach­ers re­in­stated in Mansehra

Gulf News - - Pakistan -

The Ed­u­ca­tion de­part­ment Mansehra yes­ter­day re­in­stated 20 more out of 300 sus­pended teach­ers fol­low­ing or­ders of Pe­shawar High Court (PHC) Ab­bot­tabad Bench.

The PHC had or­dered to re­in­state all 300 sacked PTC teach­ers be­fore Dec 19 while the de­part­ment had as­sured the court of im­ple­ment­ing the or­ders.

Dis­trict Ed­u­ca­tion Of­fi­cer Man­shera, Arbab Za­far Ab­basi had re­in­stated 27 teach­ers and now 20 more teach­ers have been re­in­stated. Ear­lier, in Oc­to­ber, hun­dreds of re­in­stated teach­ers staged a protest rally against the ed­u­ca­tion de­part­ment for vi­o­lat­ing the court ver­dict and filed a pe­ti­tion against the de­part­ment in PHC Ab­bot­tabad bench.

Teach­ers who were sacked dur­ing 1998 were re­in­stated by the Supreme Court in Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa after 19 years, but the Ed­u­ca­tion De­part­ment Man­shera has not yet al­lowed male and fe­male teach­ers to join the de­part­ment. On the other hand many teach­ers of Haripur have joined their du­ties.

Dur­ing 2012, the KPK gov­ern­ment passed an act through which 30 per cent of sacked em­ploy­ees would be re­in­stated with ev­ery new in­duc­tion fol­low­ing the or­ders of the Supreme Court of Pak­istan.
