It is found that the reason behind the state government not being able to pay the salaries of teachers is that they are waiting for the central government to release the funds so that the state government can clear the pending salaries, the minister later urged the protesting teachers to go back to their respective classes.

“If they don’t resume classes, we have no other option but to either issue an order of ‘no work, no pay’ or withdraw grant to school management committees of institutions that are shut,” he said.
