The Delhi University Teachers’ Association, DUTA observed a day-long hunger strike to protest against the non-payment of salaries to employees of colleges funded by the Delhi government. The DUTA had come up with the emergency call in the amid lockdown since salaries have not been paid to the employees of 12 Delhi University colleges that are funded by the Delhi government, the association said.
The employees of Delhi University have observed the hunger strike from 9 AM to 5 PM, it said. Teachers communicated their anger using social media platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter, and online platforms such as Zoom, it added.
“It is very unfortunate and distressful to know the fact that three colleges – Bhim Rao Ambedkar College, Keshav Mahavidyalaya and Shaheed Rajguru College of Applied Sciences – have not paid the salaries of March and will not be able to pay salaries of April to their employees. Other colleges will also fail to pay salaries for April if grants are not immediately released,” the DUTA said.
It is very disgraceful as in these harsh times the employees are not paid the dues. The government must look into the matter and must allocate the salaries of DU employees as soon as possible.
