Meet legitimate demands of striking teachers: Hurriyat (G) to Govt
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Aug 14: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Sunday asked authorities to accept the legitimate demands of striking contractual teachers forthwith.
“Government should shun its dictatorial approach and behave with the nation builders according to their status. The Government by prolonging the issue is playing with the future of students as the ongoing strike is affecting the class work,” a spokesman of Hurriyat (G) said in a statement.
He said the amalgam expresses solidarity with the contractual teachers as their demands are legitimate and reasonable.
“But the approach of Government is stubborn and they are unnecessarily prolonging the issue. It is surprising those people who raised hue and cry over the education of students in 2010 are silent this time,” he said.
“Teachers enjoy respectable and dignified position in every civilized society and due care is taken of their needs everywhere, but here the treatment meted out to them is unfortunate and contemptible,” he added.
The spokesman said people across the globe stage dharnas and strikes in favour of their legitimate demands. “But here government wants to sort out every issue through force and if people would come on roads for their small demands here indiscriminate force is used against them to silence them forever,” he said, adding that so- called representative are at war with the people in Kashmir.
“On one hand rulers are spending lakhs and crores of rupees daily on their luxuries, but on other, the contractual lecturers are being paid so- meager salary which is little to meet the two square meals,” he added.
Pertinently, teachers went on indefinite strike and boycotted the classes from June 27 and later on went for the hunger strike from July 30.
The teachers are observing strike against the Government’s decision to drop out their colleagues who had completed seven years of their service, from being regularized. They are demanding a change in the nomenclature; monthly wages equivalent to the basic salary of the post they are holding, one time exemption in NET/SET and end to the new norm of six classes per day.
