The indefinite hunger strike of the teachers of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) demanding regularisation of their jobs was called off today following request from the Governor Tathagata Roy. "We have called off our agitation as the Governor assured that tri-partite talks between him, the state government and us would be held on our demand," Tripura Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) Teachers' Welfare Association President Sajal Deb told reporters. The State Education Minister Tapan Chakraborty had earlier appealed to the agitating teachers to withdraw their strike saying that the government was concerned about their problems. There are 5,200 SSA teachers in the state.
