Jammu: Classes in Jammu University remained suspended for the fourth day today as teachers continued their strike demanding release of pending arrears and implementation of the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission.

The teachers under the banner of Jammu University Teachers Association (JUTA) today took out a protest rally in the campus here.

Holding placards and banners like "JUTA wants Justice", "Apna Haq Lekar Rahege", "Civil Society Hath Milao, Saath Mein Aao," the teachers said they will continue their agitation unless their demands are met.

"Despite the fact that we met the Chief Minister, Higher Education Minister, Finance Minister in the past two weeks regarding this issue, nothing was done, so we were forced to adopt the agitational path," JUTA president Dalip Singh Jamwal said.

He said that since the past two years a series of meetings had been held with the authorities concerned, including Chancellor, Pro-chancellor, Higher Education Minister, Chairman-UGC and the officials in the HRD ministry, but all such meetings and negotiations had not yielded any results.

"The government has neither implemented the UGC package nor has taken appropriate measures with HRD ministry," he said.
