The normal working the Kalkudah Zonal Education Office has not been affected due to protest fast, sources said.

BDVTA spokesman said members of his association have not been provided with permanent appointment although they were selected through a difficult interview process and are serving as volunteer teachers more than a decade. No restriction should be imposed in granting permanent appointment to volunteer teachers, he added.
