Delhi University teachers on Monday protested against the displacement of ad-hoc and temporary teachers and formation of governing bodies in 28 government-funded colleges in the city during an executive council meeting.
Members of the Delhi University Teachers Association staged a protest during the meeting and outside the Vice-Chancellor’s office, demanding the absorption of ad-hoc and temporary teachers.
The Academics for Action and Development Delhi Teachers’ Association – AAP’s teachers’ wing – also staged a demonstration during the executive council meeting, demanding immediate formation of governing bodies in university colleges funded by the Delhi government.
The protest was led by Academics for Action and Development Delhi Teachers Association’s Seema Das and Rajpal Singh Pawar – both members of the varsity’s executive council.
They sat in the well during the meeting to press for their demands including amalgamation of ad hoc and temporary teachers.
Association’s national in-charge Aditya Narayan Mishra highlighted the plight of ad-hoc and temporary teachers and demanded that the university administration stop arbitrarily displacing them and denying absorption.
He claimed that teachers had to be displaced due to the absence of a governing body.
Das also expressed concern over the “large scale displacement” of ad hoc and temporary teachers due to non-constitution of governing bodies in 28 colleges funded by the Delhi government.
“Delhi University is going back on its promise not to displace,” he said.
