<p>Teachers from the Odisha Secondary School Teachers’ Association (OSSTA) staged a protest march at Lower PMG while sporting black badges, calling on the state government to take their demands into consideration.</p>
<p>“We have been calling for government support for independent schools, the adoption of the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission, and pension and other service benefits for teachers. The administration, however, is not paying any attention to our legitimate requests. As a result, we were compelled to protest on Teachers’ Day, according to OSSTA general secretary Ranjan Kumar Das.</p>
<p>During his demonstration, instructor Vinod Mohanty said, “We have devoted 30 significant years of our life to the service of society and to raise the next generation. However, the government ignored us. How are we going to get by after retirement if we don’t receive a pension? The inter-ministerial group, established to address the needs of teachers, is due to meet on Tuesday night to examine this matter. The teachers who are protesting are hoping that the panel will take their requests into account.</p>
<p>On Teachers’ Day, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said that teachers make a special contribution to society by illuminating life with the light of freedom.</p>
<p>“My humble tribute on the occasion of holy Guru Divas and the birth anniversary of former president, eminent philosopher, and veteran politician Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan,” Patnaik wrote on X. One distinctive aspect of Indian culture is the guru-disciple tradition. Gurus provide a special contribution to the development of a healthy society by illuminating life with knowledge.</p>
