Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 16: Castigating the State government for paying no heed to the plight of School lecturers engaged on Academic Arrangements besides playing with their career, the chain hunger strike of All J&K Contractual Lecturers (10+2) Forum seeking regularization of services entered third day at Exhibition Ground today.
Vinod Kumar, a contractual lecturer has been observing "Fast unto death" since Tuesday until a concrete assurance regarding their demands was given by the Government.
Urging for the implementation of Apex Court's decision of 'equal pay for equal work' in J&K, Abhimanyu Sharma a contractual lecturer regretted that the exploitation of the highly educated youth engaged as Academic Arrangement in Schools on nominal wages was deplorable and inhumane.
He said that engagement of Ph.Ds, M.Phils and double post graduates as lecturers in the said institutions for negligible emoluments of Rs. 7000 per month as against handsome salary for their counterparts in regular establishment, despite the same nature of work, was highly discriminatory and amounted to worst form of human rights violation.
He said that the lecturers who were made to work at lesser wages did not do so voluntarilys but did so to provide food and shelter to his family at the cost of his self respect and dignity. He added that the contractual lecturers were rendering their services in the schools ranging from 7 to 15 years and several of them had been terminated by the Government after exploiting them for more than a decade.
Seeking regularization of the lecturers engaged on Academic Arrangements in the Education Department, Vinod Kumar sought a framing of a suitable regularization policy for the incumbents . He said that the use and throw policy adopted by the govt. with regard to such highly educated youth was most contemptuous and shall not be tolerated any more.
He said that aggrieved under employed lecturers shall take the hunger strike to its logical conclusion and cautioned the State Government that it would be squarely responsible in case any untoward incident took place due to fasting.
Sangeeta Sambyal, another contractual lecturer divulged that the lecturers engaged on academic arrangements shall not relent unless they were assured justice with full dignity and honour.
She said that the highly apathetic approach of the govt. towards the lecturers had pushed them towards starvation and other miseries. She asked the Government to wake up from the deep slumber and take a serious cognizance of the brewing anger of the youth which could take an ugly turn and prove disastrous for the dispensation.
Those who observed hunger strike today along with Mr. Vinod included Randeep Singh, Kanchan Bala, Balwinder, Bablu Kumar, Rajni Sharma, Seema Rajput, Vijay Sharma, Kiran Bala, Reva Rani, etc were also present at the protest site.
