JU urges protesting ARs to resume duty as strike enters 2nd day

Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, Sept 24: As the ongoing strike by the Jammu University officers of the rank of Assistant Registrar and equivalent entered into second consecutive day on Tuesday severely affecting normal functioning of the university administration, the Vice-Chancellor called protesting ARs for a meeting, which remained inconclusive.
During the meeting, which was held at official residence of the Vice-Chancellor, nothing concrete could be achieved even as the VC Prof Manoj Dhar sought cooperation of protesting ARs to resolve the ‘complicated’ issue of their promotion.
In the late evening, a written appeal was also issued by the JU Registrar Dr Meenakshi Kilam urging the protesting ARs to resume their duty immediately and cooperate with the authorities for granting a reasonable time frame of one and half month to resolve the issue amicable.
“A decision on further course of action and response to the appeal shall be taken tomorrow after a meeting of all the Assistant Registrars and equivalent, who are on indefinite protest leave from yesterday,” said Rajinder Singh, president of JU Officers Forum.
As already reported, the officers who went on indefinite protest leave from Monday, are up in arms against unprecedented delay in implementation of the Promotional scheme, which was approved by the University Council more than two years back but not put into practice because of opposition of the same by a few senior officers.
