LAHORE: The protesting teachers ended their protest after successful talks with the Punjab government on Monday night.

According to details, Punjab teachers called off their campaign following successful negotiations with Punjab Minister for Higher Education Raja Yasir Humayun Sarfaraz.

It must be noted that the Punjab Professors and Lecturers Association (PPLA) had staged a sit-in against the Punjab government on Mall road near the Punjab Assembly since March 26.

The major demands of the teachers were the implementation of rapid promotions, pay protection and five-tier promotion formula as being followed in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

On the occasion, PPLA president Hafiz Abdul Khaliq also warned to resume the protest if the demands were not met in the designated time.
