JAMMU, May 10: As their ongoing chain hunger strike entered into 86th consecutive day today, the Contractual Lecturers threatened direct action against the BJP ministers if their demand of regularization is not taken up in the next Cabinet meeting.
“If the BJP Ministers do not initiate in the matter personally for getting the job of 10+2 Contractual Lecturers done in the next Cabinet, than we will pull all these ministers out of their houses , burn effigies, Ghaerao their houses and after that we will expose these BJP ministers as well as MLAs before public that upto what extent they are illiterate, coward, liers as well as incapable for the post they are holding,” announced Arun Bakshi, president of Contractual Lecturers (10+2) Association, while addressing a protest demonstration here today.
He lamented that despite a chain hunger strike and continuous protest dharna for the last 86 days, there has been no response from the Government side. While justifying the demand, Arun Bakshi explained that these 10+2 Lecturers were contractual vide order no.1584-edu.of 2003 and vide order no.1328 of GAD, according to which they are to be continued till further orders and their regularization.
These Contractual Lecturers are demanding their regularization as per the Civil Services Special Provision Act 2010, a policy framed for the Regularization of all the ad-hoc/ Contractual/Consolidated employees after rendering seven years of services.
During the protest demonstration, the agitating Contractual Lecturers raised slogans in support of their demand and against the State Government. They also torched an effigy of the State Government to show their resentment against no response of the concerned authorities towards their genuine demand.
The protest demonstration was also addressed by Jeevan Kumar, State press secretary, who reiterated that the Association will not lift this hunger strike dharna till their cases for regularization as per Civil Services Special Provision Act 2010 are finally settled.
