Guest lecturers go on indefinite stir

Students at the government colleges had to face inconvenience as guest lecturers of government colleges began indefinite stir across the State. 

The stir has been successful in Vittal Government first grade college. Altogether 42 guest lecturers work in Vittal government college and on Monday, 22 lecturers were supposed to perform duties.

As the guest lecturers are staging stir,  none of them attended the class. A few students, too, did not turn up as there already had the information on the strike. The three regular lecturers had to manage the other classes.  

There are 10 degree classes and two post graduate classes in the college. When the three permanent lecturers took the classes, the students of the remaining classes loitered around and some of them returned home.  

One of the guest lecturers said that even the daily wage labourers who do the centering work gets Rs 25,000 per month as salary. But, the guest lecturers who have post graduate degree and PhD are given only Rs 8,000 to Rs 10,000.

Earlier, the guest lecturers used to serve in more than one colleges as they were paid low. But, for the two years the government has restricted them from serving in more than one college. This has made the family conditions of the guest lecturers worse, some lecturers said.

If the government is for saving the money by paying the guest lecturers low salary, why it cant appoint IAS officers as guest officers by paying them less salaries, they questioned. Students of the government colleges are worried as the exams are nearing.
