20 sacked teachers reinstated in Mansehra
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.
