 SHILLONG: In was an uneasy moment for the dignitaries present at the function organized to celebrate Teachers’ Day here when a recipient of the district award lamented the plight of the teachers who have been driven to the extent of boycotting an occasion meant solely for them.

K Kharkongor, the Principal of Laban Presbyterian Higher Secondary School, expressed concern over the ongoing agitation by teachers and asked the Education Minister to immediately invite them for discussion.

He also pointed out that deficit teachers have not received their salaries since the last three months and “it is a matter of concern for one and all,” he said.
