SPLA demands implementation of policies
Karachi: The ignorance of Chief Secretary (CS) Sindh, department of Education and Finance over the implementation of the recommendations PSB-II has been creating frustration and restlessness among the teachers of the public sector colleges in Sindh.
This was expressed by the central leadership of Sindh Professors Lecturers Association (SPLA) on Monday. The SPLA also said that they were facing pressure from the teachers who were asking the leaders of the association to launch a movement against the government.
The government had promised to offer timescales to the teachers, deployment of lecturers in colleges, promotions of teaching and non-teaching staff into another grade. But, no practical work has been done in this regard so far, they said.
The central leaders of SPLA, in their appeal to the CS and minister of finance, asked the authority concerned to take action of unnecessary delay, which was creating panic among the teachers and non-teaching staff.
Some officers were deliberately using delay tactics and not issuing notification regarding the matters which were previously solved during high level meetings, they added. Meanwhile, the SPLA has announced that they would stage hunger strikes, black days and demonstrations in front of colleges if their demands were not fulfilled by the authorities concerned.
After a meeting, which would be held on February 14, 2011, the high command of the association would decide its next steps. The SPLA may also stage a sit-in in front of the offices of the CS or the Chief Minister House, if there was no progress on the matter, they said. The news
