University teachers in PoK demonstrate demanding long-due salary hike

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 18 Jan 2024, 01:09 pm

University teachers in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK)'s Bagh region recently took out a protest rally against the administration over a backlog of payments and demanded a long-due salary hike, media reports said.

Protestors on campus grounds were seen carrying huge posters and placards during their demonstration, ANI reported.

The protesters claimed they did not have salary-hike for quite sometime now and demanded payment of old backlogs.

Speaking at the site, one of the protesting university teachers was quoted as saying by ANI, “In 2021, we got 25 per cent hike. But we received it only six months later and we still haven’t received the previous backlog. In 2022, a 15 per cent hike was given but the previous backlog was again not given. Is it not inefficiency? You (Pakistan administration) are not doing your work, and when I am demanding my rights, how can it be termed misconduct?”

“Today, if it is being said that the reputation and atmosphere of the university are being hampered, the administration must take note of it and think about what impact it will have,” another protestor said.
