    Dear people. Plz do not look at this via politisizedmind. This is not a mere matter of pay-hike. As Prof. Nirmal correctly says education is everything. This is for all. If anyone is jelous of university lecturers salary, please blame that. Yet please do not ignore the other demands which are the heart of the education of the entire nation.

    At the end of this only the poor university student will be penalized due to delays caused by this unruly strike.

    This is a good movement for state Education.Government should attend this and bring the productive solution and rectify the matters for better future of motherland.
    If we not protect state Education it will re-bounce and will lead to arise another terrorism organization like LTTE in future.
