Flash stir by varsity staff

Police arrested a few of the agitators when they broke the flower pots in front of the vice-chancellor’s office.

The strike was triggered by the suicide attempt of one of their colleagues, Prakash Chalawadi, a second division assistant, who consumed poison on Monday, unable to bear the financial hardships due to non-payment of salary.

The agitators said, nearly 150 employees were paid a paltry sum of Rs 2,000 per month and were denied the Government scales since 2003.  They said, it was when G V Sugur  was the registrar that they  were made the victims of the feud between him and the then V-C Saeeda Akthar and were denied the scales they were entitled for.  From then onwards, they were paid a meagre salary of Rs 2,000 per month.

V-C Geeta Bali assured them that she would take up the matter with the Government.
