Dharwad: The University Agricultural Sciences (UAS) teachers’ strike reached its 12th day on Saturday. However, not a single demand of the agitating teachers has been met thus far.

Basavaraj Horatti, Chairman of the Karnataka Legislative Council, convened a meeting on October 10. And after more than two hours of discussion, the University Vice-Chancellor, his officials, and the Teachers’ Association decided to concentrate on four issues.

1) CAS Promotion from the due date; 2) Promotion period from AGP 6000 to 7000 to be reduced to 5 years from 6 years; 3) No restrictions on author credit for scientific papers; and 4) In-charge arrangement of officers immediately on seniority and on rotation for a maximum of six months until regular appointments are made.

Despite agreeing to all four demands, Vice-Chancellor Dr MB Chetti has not worked on these problems in order to give final directives, according to agitating teachers. They said that, despite consenting in the presence of Horatti, instructors felt deceived. As a result, the Association predicts that the strike will continue.

Meanwhile, former MLA NH Konaraddi met with teachers on Saturday and expressed his support. He also requested VC Dr Chetti to follow through on his remarks to Horatti and defend teachers’ real interests.

The Association also claims that the University’s 34th Convocation will take place on October 18th and that professors would not interfere in any manner.

The Association wishes for the programme to go smoothly and successfully, but teachers will continue their strike quietly, according to General Secretary Dr Mahantesh Nayak.
