Bhopal: 

A woman guest lecturer shaved off her head in Madhya Pradesh's Bhopal on International Women's Day demanding regularisation of her college job.

Guest lecturer Neema Singh, 42, is among the several teaching staff who have been protesting over the past several weeks demanding that the state government make them permanent employees.

"To press for regularization of our jobs among other demands, Neema, who works in a college in Katni, and eight men guest lecturers shaved off their heads. We have been on protest since the last 90 days," MP Guest Lecturers' Union president Dr Devraj Singh told PTI.

He said their demands include reinstatement of 2000-odd former colleagues who were sacked.

"If the state government does not accept our demands shortly, we will go to New Delhi and tonsure our heads there," he added.

Earlier, in a public meeting, senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia had extended support to the protesting guest lecturers and had asked his party to fulfil its manifesto promise of regularising their jobs.

About The Campaign

NDTV in partnership with UBER is launching a sustained campaign 'Roshan Dilli'  to try and raise safety standards in India's capital, New Delhi.

Our focus is to try and improve lighting in public spaces in the city. Lighting is a key factor in shaping women's perceptions of safety

The initiative will provide a platform for all stakeholders to discuss our goal of improving safety standards, to start a conversation about safety of women in the country

It will also highlight various interventions and solutions that help to make women safe and put the spotlight on what more can be done.

The campaign will accentuate the need for Safety to be a shared responsibility

The need for gender sensitization and how law enforcement and civil society through checks and education can try and make women safer

We hope you will join us and help make New Delhi a safer city for women.
