DUTA urges Centre to takeover colleges, condemns Delhi govt

New Delhi: The Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) Friday urged the Centre to take responsibility of dozen of colleges as the Arvind Kejriwal-led government failed ignored their demands.

DUTA president AK Baghi said, “Due to fund deficit, pay cut of teachers happening since last 2 years in 12 colleges under Delhi government. We’ve held demonstrations outside Chief Minister’s house, gone to Deputy CM but nobody listened to us.”

“We want the Central government to take these colleges under its wing,” he demanded.

The DUTA president further accused the Kejriwal-led Delhi government of ‘politics’ on academic institutions.

He said, “There’s misgovernance in 20 more colleges under Delhi government. Governing bodies in those colleges have been politicised, AAP workers appointed as members.”

Meanwhile, the ex-president Rajib Ray added that the teachers’ association has protested multiple times against the Delhi government but their voices went unheard.

“Fund deficit led to delays in pay and there are salary cuts of teachers of 12 colleges under Delhi government including Deen Dayal Upadhyay college in last 4 years. In a year, we protested 4-6 times. Medical bills weren’t reimbursed, even non-teaching staff suffered,” he said.
