Teachers in Lakki Marwat, Pakistan have threatened to commit suicide if their salaries are not paid.
The group of 50 teachers have not been paid for ten months and are unable to survive – even though they have been carrying out their duties at their respective primary schools every day. They have threatened to set up a camp where they will go on hunger strike and self immolate if they are not paid.
Federal Directorate teachers in Pakistan are on indefinite strike since Thursday. The teachers are members of the Federal Government Teachers Association (FGTA) and are demanding that salary increases which have been promised to them since last November be paid.
