Mysuru: Aam Aadmi Party has condemned the Music University’s sudden decision of dismissing 21 of its non-teaching staff. AAP’s Mysuru District President Malavika Gubbivani has demanded an inquiry into the whole episode, payment of pending 13-month salary to the staff and punishment to the guilty.
Speaking to the protesting staff in front of the University, she said, “Services of workers, who had been working for several years, has been terminated giving an excuse that there had been irregularities in their appointment. Hoping that they will eventually get paid, these workers continued to work for 13 months. The non-renewal of their contracts has come as a shock to them. The varsity’s decision should be rescinded and their wages for 13 months must be paid.
“If there are irregularities in the appointment process that should be rectified and the guilty officers be punished. It’s unfair to let them work and then deny them their wages. It is regrettable that even when they are protesting for the last two months, the administration is conveniently acting blind. The government must solve this issue at the earliest, she demanded.
