A rare privilege for a part time lecturer

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.
