Students have planned to intensify their agitation against the decision of the Telangana state government to regularise contract employees.
Students, who are protesting on the Osmania University campus for the past 52 days, have called for “Telangana educational institutions bandh” on September 10 to press for their demands.
Students have been demanding immediate withdrawal of regularisation of contract staff and fill all the vacancies in the government departments by conducting recruitment exams.
Telangana Students and Unemployed JAC, comprising student organisations such as ABVP, TNSF, NSUI, MSF, GVS, BC students union, has been formed to intensify the agitation.
“Regularising contract staff will deny chance for meritorious students to secure government jobs. We have fought for Telangana all these years since we were deprived of jobs in the unified Andhra Pradesh. The TRS government is doing injustice again to Telangana students by regularising contract staff who secured jobs not on merit but on recommendations by political leaders. We will not tolerate this,” said J. Kalyan, chairman of JAC.
He urged the managements of all the institutions to observe bandh on September 10 and support their cause.
