Guest faculty teachers protest for job security

T4U NEWS: Ludhiana, Dec 1

To mark their protest against the Punjab Government, protesting guest faculty teachers at Government College for Girls placed 'lollipops' on pictures of Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and Education Minister Pargat Singh.

Members of the Government Colleges Guest Faculty Assistant Professors Association, Punjab, also distributed lollipops among people.

Demanding security of their jobs, protesting teachers alleged that Channi and Pargat were distributing 'lollipops' among people. Teachers said protests had been going on across Punjab for the last 29 days due to the 'deadly' policies adopted by the state government against assistant professors working in government colleges for the last 15 to 20 years on guest-faculty, part-time or contract basis.

"The Punjab Government is just wasting time by distributing lollipops among teachers every time instead of giving us in written to protect our jobs. This has forced us to adopt the path of agitation," said protesters. Falwinder Verma from Government College for Girls said, "We demand that the government must secure jobs of guest-faculty, part-time and contractual assistant professors working in government colleges. Prior to recruitment, the Punjab quota should be fixed for the youth of state." — TNS
