Despite MHRD assurance to meet, DU teachers continue protest over appointment

The Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA) continues its protest demanding withdrawal of August 28 circular issued by VC, despite MHRD’s assurance to hold talks. Union Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has called Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA) office bearers for discussion at 4:00 pm today.

Again this morning, the teachers on the call of DUTA gathered at Vice-Chancellor’s office, while the administration has called the security forces on the campus. Minor scuffles broke out between the security forces and the protesting teachers when the latter tried to barge in the VC lodge.

On Wednesday, succumbing to the DUTA’s agitation, the Delhi University administration had called the teacher representatives for a meeting to resolve the matter. The meeting went on for six hours, however, no solution could be reached.

Yesterday, a few teachers broke into Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi”s office and painted the walls with slogans “VC go back” and “Save Public Education”. The teachers also raised slogans against New Education Policy and the administration of Delhi University.

Teachers of the Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) are on indefinite strike to protest the Principal Association’s (DUPA) circular which seeks to oust 4,500 teachers from their jobs.

The DUPA circular follows the circular issued by Vice Chancellor Professor Yogesh Tyagi dated August 29 which mandated the appointment of guest teachers, instead of ad-hoc faculty as has been the norm in the university since 1990s.

The DUTA has called the strike at a critical juncture when the semester examinations are on. The Association has urged all the teachers to boycott exam duties until their demands are met.
