BU teachers, staff protest for salaries in Pakistan

Leaders of the joint action committee, including Prof Dr Kaleemullah Barech, Shah Ali Bugti, Nazir Ahmed Lehri, Fareed Khan Achakzai, and others, on Sunday said despite passage of 24 days in March, professors and employees of the University of Balochistan (UoB) have not received salaries and pensions for the last three months.

Additionally, the announced 35 per cent payment in the annual budget for research centres’ professors, officers, and employees, as well as house rent allowance, has not been disbursed yet, they were quoted as saying by Dawn News.

They said that professors and employees have set up camps in front of the main gate of the UoB to demand salaries and pensions throughout Ramazan.

They have been organising daily protest rallies and sit-ins on Sariab Road.

The protesters recently held protest rallies from the UoB to the Quetta Press Club.

They even demonstrated in front of the secretariat, Quetta commissioner office and Manan Chowk.

However, neither the provincial nor the federal government has taken notice, and the Higher Education Commission, Islamabad has also shown indifference, reported Dawn News.
