Nagpur: Going on strike has emerged as the new trend among various associations, especially after the Maharashtra government bowed down to pressure of farmers for loan waiver.

The strike has been called by goverment and non-government teachers association which also launched an agitation at Samvidhan Square here on Thursday.

They have also put up a 31-point charter of demands which include demand from implementation of seventh pay commission to hiking pensions.
