The pre-university lecturers will launch a four-pronged protest on the eve of New Year, seeking hike in salary.
Addressing a press meet here in the city on Wednesday, president of Lecturers Association, Suresh Babu said, “Karnataka State PU Lecturers Association and Principals Associations, Mysuru unit and officer bearers will launch the protest by submitting a memorandum to DC Randeep on Saturday. We have been demanding the increase in our pay from a long time, but there is no positive response yet. We requested for eight increments but the government considered the report and approved only four increments. However, after this the government approved additional two increments but announced just one increment.”
“Last year, we had protested against this but considering the students, we withdrew the protest. As announced earlier, we are again launching the protest and would continue till our demands are fulfilled,” he added.
