GGSIPU teachers take up problems with Congress MP

Members of the teachers’ association of Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University recently met west Delhi Congress MP Mahabal Mishra to raise concerns regarding the alleged academic and administrative malpractices taking place in the varsity.

The parliamentarian assured that their concerns will be highlighted at a relevant platform.
“The teachers poured their heart out and made him aware of how administrative malpractices have ruined the very fabric of the university system. They informed Mishra that they have also contacted chief minister Sheila Dikshit,” said a member of IP teachers association (IPTUA).

“The vitiated atmosphere of the university becomes evident from the fact that Mishra had to meet the teachers in the extreme summer heat on the stairs in front of the library as the administration refused to hold the meeting at the seminar hall,” the member added.
The teachers’ association which came in existence three years ago has not been recognised by the varsity till now despite majority of the teachers being part of it.

Citing examples of similar denials by the administration to use halls and auditoriums for public meetings, the member said, “Last year also the university cancelled the booking of the seminar hall when IPUTA invited former minister and Rajya Sabha MP Mani Shankar Aiyar for a seminar here.”

The teachers’ body also said that any dissent is responded by show cause notices.
 Recently such notices were slapped on some IPTUA members.

The association submitted a memorandum to the MP.

The university comes under the Delhi government. Several representations to the concerned higher authorities regarding the malpractices prevailing in the university have been sent by the association.
