As indefinite Chain hunger strike under the banner of Teachers’ Joint Action Committee ( TJAC ), which is an amalgam of various organizations of Teachers including J & K Teachers Forum, J&K ReT Forum , J & K SSA Forum etc is going on at Srinagar and Jammu.
The hunger strike at Srinagar is going on under the dynamic leadership of chairman TJAC Abdul Qayoom Wani and JKRTTF chairman Gazi Abdul Aziz , whereas the hunger strike at Jammu is going on under the dynamic leadership of State President JKRTTF Vinod Sharma and state General Secretary JKTF Ganesh Khajuria.
The indefinite hunger strike at Jammu entered 21st day whereas it entered 17th day at Srinagar but the government has not shown any sort of positive response regarding the implementation of 7th Pay Commission and delinking of SSA Salary till date thereby forcing the teachers to continue their stir.

This was decided by the TJAC leaders from both the provinces who announced that TJAC leadership will participate in this programme at Jantar Mantar New Delhi.
