KHOST CITY (Pajhwok):  The distribution of land plots to 249 teachers kicked off in southeastern Khost province after the teachers went on strike, officials said Wednesday.

Around 249 teachers would receive the land plots at Matan Mina Township north of Khost City, the provincial capital.

Governor Mohammad Halim Fidae, addressing a gathering that marked the start of land plots distribution, said a teacher having spent a lot of time teaching would receive one plot each.

He said a number of retired teachers had also been included in the list to receive the land.

All eligible teachers in Khost would be given one plot each, but the process would take time, he added.

Educationinfo-icon Department head Nasir Ahmad Rokhan told the gathering that it was a 2006 project which had to be postponed due to some technical issues.

He said after cooperation of the governor’s house, they were able to start the distribution of land plots among 249 teachers in the province.

Mohammad Rasool, a teacher, expressed his happiness over receiving the plot after severing as teacher for few decades.
