New Delhi: Irked at non payment of salaries of the college teachers of 97 government aided colleges of Haryana, the Aam Aadmi Partys Teachers Wing (AADTA) requested Governor and chancellor Bandaru Dattatreya to immediately intervene into the situation and initiate steps for release of the salaries without any further delay.

In his letter to the Governor, National Incharge AADTA , Aaditya Narayan Misra said that College Teachers Association (CTA) had made a written request to the Haryana Chief Minister on April 20 but the government so far did not pay any attention to the issue.

While drawing the attention of the Governor towards the issue, Dr. Mishra said that the teachers of 97 Government aided colleges of Harayana have not been getting their salaries regularly as payment of the same has been pending for two to three months.
It is a matter of grave concern as inordinate delay in payment of salaries has caused immense hardships to many teachers.

Meanwhile National Committee members of AADTA Prof. Tej Narayan Ojha and Prof. Rajesh Kumar Jha said that salary is a basic right of employees and such delay is a serious infringement. While National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 talks of building Motivated, Energized and Capable Faculty, but how can this be achieved in case the adherents themselves delay the payment of salaries, they questioned.
