LAKKI MARWAT - Students of Frontier Education Foundation Girls College Naurang held a demonstration on Saturday to protest the shortage of teachers in the college.

Over fifty female students came out on the main grand trunk roan in Naurang city and blocked it for vehicular traffic. They said that the college lacked teachers of different subjects and it hampered their education. "We deposited all types of fees and now it is the responsibility of high ups concerned to ensure availability of teachers in the college," they maintained. They told that the college was in dire need of teachers to teach physics, mathematics, statistics and other subjects and higher authorities concerned should pay attention to it. Knowing about the students' protest local police officials and college teachers rushed to the place and assured the protesting students that vacant posts of teachers would soon be filled. Upon assurance the protesters opened the road and dispersed.

Meanwhile, teachers of Working Folks Grammar Higher Secondary School Naurang boycotted classes against the nonpayment of salaries.

"Teachers of the school have not been paid salaries of last month prompting them to show their anger and unrest," said a teacher wishing not to be named. He said that teachers did not attend classes on Saturday and they gathered in front of the principal's office to record their grievances.

"The teachers of working folk's grammar school Ghaznikhel are also without salaries for the last three months," he maintained.
