Bhubaneswar: The block grant teachers in State have decided to observe the Teachers Day as a black day today protesting negligence on the part of the State government towards them.

Notably, the teachers recently staged demonstrations during the monsoon session of the assembly demanding full grant to them. The block grant teachers’ stir affected thousands of students across the State.

Odisha government on August 26 set up a seven-member minister-level committee to discuss their demand of full grant-in-aid.
