Part time teachers from all corners of the State, assembled at Raja Subodh Mullick Squire, Kolkata, on Monday, 16th Dec, & marched in a long procession to Rani Rashmoni Squire, led by Mrs Elora Biswas, where the teachers in an attempt to depict their plight, at not receiving their monthly remuneration & demanding other benifits of a full time teacher, mock worshipped the cardboard effigy of the State Education Minister, & made the assembled onlookers, media & participants realize, that in spite of upholding the Higher Education infrastructure of the State for over the years, they are treated as second class citizens, who are not even considered honourable teachers by the State Government. Mrs Biswas was later escorted by the police to "Nabanna", the administrative headquarter of the State, where she has been reported to have presented to the Hon'ble Chief Minister, a deputation, stating the demands of part time teachers.

In a very recent development the Principal of Ananda Chandra College, Jalpaiguri has appointed Mr. Moloy Kanti Das, a part time lecturer of his college, from the Deptt. of History, as teacher-in-charge, in his temporary absence from office. The decision was taken by the Principal amidst several oppositions from all full time teachers. Mr. Das was considered the most efficient among all the others present. This may be considered as a rare prestige for part time lecturers, who have till date been considered nothing worthwhile by most college authorities. Such decisions & hopefully many more in the days to come, will definitely strengthen the part time teachers movement in the State.

The govt has announced Ad-hoc puja bonus for all existing part time College & University teachers of the state on 30th Aug,'13, which though serves as a happy tiding for many, during festive seasons, is only but a meagre consolation prize for all the movements of part time teachers, till date. It is obvious for the Govt to feel that people who have nothing can be easily satisfied with very little that may be offered to them, but though, we appreciate the Govt decision of keeping in mind the miserable state of nearly 7000 College teachers, during festive seasons, still we want to emphasize that the primary demand of our association for pay scale for all part time teachers remains the foremost priority, along with the change of name of our teaching posts. We will fight for these demands to our last breath, if required. We require full dignity & recognition of our labour & dedication over the years, not in piecemeal or as a mere throwaway prize, but in a prestigious manner.
