BBMKU teachers hold demonstration against cut in holidays

Thursday, 25 May 2023 | PNS | Dhanbad

Host of teachers of Binod Bihari Mahto Koylanchal University (BBMKU ) on Wednesday held demonstration outside university campus to protest cut in state government notified holidays by Governor's secretariate.They also wore black badges while demonstrations.

They shouted slogans of teachers' unity and sodality  and demanded withdrawal of the order issued  by the Governor's secretariat in this regard.

Talking to media outside the university building association general secretary Himanshu Shekher Choudhary  said that whosoever has suggested for this cut   is unaware of the functioning of universities in Jharkhand.

Himanshu said we are not opposed to cuts but what about the numbers of  Earned and Casual leaves that as vocational staff we don't get compared to non vocational staff. There must  be mention of these too  in order to cut. As vocational staff as per notification of the state government  we get only 12 earn leave against 33 in a calendar year compared to non vocational staff.. Similarly, we  have just eight casual leaves compared  to16 of theirs.

Terming it a double standard, Himanshu said if the matter is not hammered out the  teachers would hold a day long pendown strike and if no action were taken, would consider  for a hars step in protest for withdrawal of the order.

In reply to a question over university's  demand of holding examination of second  generic paper  for  undergraduate students who have passed  out from  2015 till 2022,Himanshu admitted , it was a mistake  at some  level  by universities, but unfortunately it's students that now  are at receiving end..
