Varsity teachers continue protest

The Delhi University Teachers’ Association members will meet the acting principal of Kirori Mal College shortly, demanding an independent inquiry into the suspension of principal Bhim Sen Singh and withdrawal of show cause notices to staff association members.

 KMC teachers are on protest since August 2 demanding the withdrawal of show cause notices and suspension of Singh.

On August 1, the KMC staff association members appealed to the teaching and student community to join them against the suspension of
Singh over his comments made in the press against recently appointed governing body chairman.

According to members, DUTA is also planning to write a letter to the registrar on the issue.

DU has recently asked retired Supreme Court Judge A K Ganguly to probe the charges levelled against Singh.

“There has been yet no response from DU officials about the KMC teachers protest,” said a teacher from KMC.

Meanwhile, the non-teaching staff intensified its protest from Monday. The union members are on strike since August 7 demanding withdrawal of registrar’s decision on grades given to the permanent non-teaching staff employed before 1992.

“All our representatives from different colleges joined us. There have been no dialogue with any DU official apart from around three letters being sent to the union members to end the protest or no work, no pay leave will levied,” said Raj Pal, president, Delhi University and College Karamchari Union (DUCKU).

The members have decided to continue the protest till the registrar does not revoke the decision.

A senior DU official said, “talks are on about the issues.”
