Teachers Protest Against Placing Education Directorate Under Municipal Corporation

ISLAMABAD: Teachers and employees on Thursday staged a 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 if the government does not withdraw this move.

On the other hand, the Islamabad Police have warned the protestors if they tried to remove the barricade again then action will be taken against them.

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.
