Hyderabad, May 24 : Lok Satta Party State President Katari Srinivasa Rao has requested Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy not to disturb contract lecturers working in Government colleges even as it recruits new lecturers.
In a letter to the Chief Minister, Srinivasa Rao pointed out that the Government had appointed qualified people as contract lecturers in 820 junior and 250 degree colleges in the year 2000. The lecturers are haunted by job insecurity as they are appointed on contract basis and have become ineligible to try for other jobs because of age, he said.
While welcoming the Government move to recruit lecturers, Srinivasa Rao appealed to the Chief Minister to ensure that the contract lecturers already in service are not disturbed in the process. INN
