KATHMANDU, Sept 22: The agitating teachers in Kathmandu took to the streets for the third consecutive day on Friday, expressing their discontent through dancing and singing.
The protesting government school teachers from across the country have gathered in Kathmandu in response to the call from Nepal Teachers' Federation to voice their dissatisfaction with certain provisions of the School Education Bill-2080 BS. They are demanding an amendment to the Bill, which is under consideration in the parliament.
Despite repeated rounds of discussions held between the protesting teachers and the government since Thursday, the two sides have yet to reach a consensus.
Here are some photos of the protest taken by Republica’s Photojournalist Rajib Khatri.
