“We had thought the government would open up new employment opportunities after the annulment of special status but the contrary happened in Jammu and Kashmir. The termination of our services is a grave injustice towards us,” they said.

Shouting slogans and carrying placards in support of their demand for revocation of the controversial government order, the protesting lecturers vowed to continue their struggle till the government revokes its order with regard to the termination of their services.
