The teachers gathered outside CM’s residence in the afternoon and raised anti-government slogans. As they were marching towards the CM’s residence, police stopped them. However, the teachers tried to dislodge barricades which lead to their scuffle with the police.

The aggrieved teachers said that despite receiving joining letters, they are still unemployed.

Sandeep Singh Gill, a leader of the union, said that the state government had given them joining letters in January. Over a month has passed but they are yet to be allotted stations, he added.

“We are yet to join the service even after getting joining letters. If the government fails to allot stations in the coming days, we will intensify our struggle,” he added. Later, the teachers concluded their protest after local administration assured them to raise their demand with the state government.
