Academic arrangement lecturers appeal govt
Srinagar, Mar 11: The lecturers working on academic arrangements in Degree colleges across the Valley have urged the government to fulfill its promise.
“We observed strike in the colleges for two months last year and called it off on the assurance of the Minister for Higher Education, Abdul Gani Malik and Chief Minister’s Advisor, Mubarak Gul. The duo promised us that our grievances would be redressed forthwith,” the lecturers said.
However, they said that the government didn’t fulfill any of their demands including regularization of those who worked in colleges for five years in phased manner, enhancement of monthly remuneration. “Our demand that the lecturers who had worked in the colleges from the last five years should not be asked to apply annually was also not fulfilled,” the lecturers said.
They said the government hasn’t provided them the salary of the striking period. “We were given a break in the experience despite the assurance from the Education minister that no extreme step will be taken against the striking lecturers and the government will take a humanitarian view of the situation,” the lecturers said, adding that they were made to reapply for the academic session 2012.
“We have served the higher education department with sincerity and dedication from last many years, even during the unrest of 2008 and 2010,” the lecturers said.
They sought the intervention of Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah.
