A tough stand by the Jharkhand High Court and an open threat to terminate their services by state Human Resources Development Minister Baidyanath Ram has forced the 75,000-odd striking para teachers (contractual teachers) to return to their classes on Thursday.
Except for the cabinet decision to hike their honorarium by Rs 700 a month, nothing substantial in favour of the para teachers has been taken since August 27 when the strike began.
With the current monthly salaries being Rs 5,000-6,000, the minister said a hike to Rs 10,000 will be requested.
