Hyderabad, Nov 3 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Government would hold talks with the leaders of Joint Action Committee of Teachers Organisations (JACTO) to settle the issue, as the strike by the teachers entered the 13th day today.
The Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy and State Education Minister D Rajanarasimha, among others would hold talks with JACTO leadres.
The JACTO offer came in the wake of a suggestion from the High Court to the striking teachers and the State Government to resolve outstanding issues through talks, as the stir would affect the future of students.
However, the striking teachers continued to hold dharnas at all mandal and district headquarters to press their demands, which included unified service rules, promotion and payment of two notional increment for apprentice teachers.
The deadlock between the two sides persists, with the Government making it clear that it could not make any financial commitment till April 2009, while striking teachers pressing for promulgation of a Government Order, committed to provide two increments for apprentice teachers.
