They said that teachers were optimistic that provincial rulers would facilitate primary schoolteachers with perks and privileges to implement the slogan of change in letter and spirit.
They asked the government to restore teacher son quota and promote primary school teachers having only matriculation qualification to BPS-14 without any delay.
