On November 24, 2016 the former government during a cabinet meeting, a bill was passed to make regularisation for the selected teachers. Principal secretary of MOBC, M.A.A. Khan had also instructed WAQF board to release the order for regularisation of part-time teachers, he added.

Teachers of traditional madrasa have been suffering without their monthly salary for the last forty months. The issue was also brought to chief minister on “Meeyam gi numit” but the government failed to give any positive response till now, Abdul added.
