Not paid, Mansa varsity guest faculty holds protest

Guest teachers protest at Mata Sundri University Girls College, Mansa.

Mansa, May 3

Guest faculty (assistant professors) of constituent college, Mata Sundri University Girls College, Mansa, affiliated to Punjabi University, Patiala, staged a protest in front of the college campus over non-payment of salaries for the last 14 months. They raised slogans against the college authorities and Punjabi University and demanded that their pending salaries be released at the earliest.

Manpreet Singh, a guest faculty at the college, said, “We have been taking classes of students even during and after the lockdown last year, but did not get our salaries till now. We have not received salaries since March 2020. Bringing the matter to the college authorities and holding protests did not yield any result so far. Our salaries are meagre as compared to the permanent staff members and we have not been getting that either.”

Barinder Kaur, principal of the college, said, “We have forwarded records of the guest faculty to the university authorities and they can only tell the exact status of the salary payment now.” — TNS
