Revanth Urges KCR to Ensure Timely Payment for Contract Employees and Teachers:
Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao had made assurances of granting permanent employment to contract employees and junior lecturers who had played pivotal roles in the statehood movement. These promises were even outlined in the party’s 2014 manifesto. However, TPCC president A. Revanth Reddy pointed out that these promises have gone unfulfilled, and contract employees and lecturers are also facing issues with timely payment.
In an open letter addressed to Rao, Reddy lamented that the situation has not improved since the formation of Telangana. Many individuals are struggling to receive their wages promptly and are resorting to desperate measures. For instance, contract lecturers, whose services were regularized in May, have yet to be paid for their work in April. Moreover, degree contract lecturers in various districts await payment for their pending work, with no government response to their grievances. This situation has forced many to take out loans to cover their daily expenses.
Reddy questioned whether this government truly prioritizes the welfare of its employees. He emphasized the importance of educators in shaping the country’s future and criticized the failure to compensate them adequately. The Congress party pledged its support to contract lecturers and committed to formulating an action plan to address their concerns.
Furthermore, Reddy took to Twitter to highlight the issues faced by ordinary citizens, sharing images of flooded roads and neighborhoods. He pointed out that these areas are home to the disadvantaged and called on KCR to take action. Revanth Urges KCR to Ensure Timely Payment for Contract Employees and Teachers.
