Patna: Main opposition RJD MLAs today created a ruckus during zero hour in the state assembly demanding payment of full salary of teachers working in unaided schools in Bihar.

Soon after the speaker Uday Narayan Choudhary rejected an adjournment motion brought by RJD MLA Abdul Ghafoor, the agitated RJD members, waving placards, rose in their seats.

The agitated MLAs were demanding that the state government start making full payment of salary to teachers of unaided schools like the teachers of government schools.

They also demanded a change in the existing policy about unaided school teachers.

Leader of opposition Abdul Bari Siddiqui expressed serious concern over the state government allegedly overlooking the problems facing the teachers.

State Water Resource Minister Vijay Kumar Choudhary who was present in the house, objected to the manner in which the opposition raised the issue. He accused the erstwhile RJD and Congress governments of having discriminated against the teachers of unaided schools.

Choudhary asserted that his government had made a full fledged policy for making payment to teachers of unaided schools.

He charged the opposition MLAs with creating uproar and shouting slogans in the house for "their publicity".

Had they been serious about the issue, the erstwhile governments should have implemented a policy about payment of salary to the teachers, he said.
