Teachers protest against placing FDE under MCI
Teachers and employees on Thursday have staged protest against placing Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) under the Municipal Corporation Islamabad (MCI).
According to details, the protesters have reached infront of the Parliament by removing barriers and fences where they manhandled with the security personnel and exchanged harsh words.
The teachers have threatened that the protest outside the Parliament can be turned into a sit-in until the revocation of the move.
On the other hand, all 390 schools in the federal capital remained closed, affecting around 200,000 students.
It is to be mentioned here that the teachers went on strike against the Local Government Ordinance 2021. Under this ordinance, FDE would report to the yet-to-be elected mayor of Islamabad.
