The ongoing conflict between Delhi University’s 12 government-funded pre-Delhi colleges and DUTA is yet to stop. The teachers of Delhi University have once again taken out a protest march on foot to the residence of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
From the VC office of DU’s North Campus to the Chief Minister’s residence (CM Residency), the teachers took out a foot march and expressed their anger. They urged the Delhi Government to work towards taking education in a new direction, rather than overcoming anti-education policies. This foot protest march was carried out on the call of the Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA).
In this, the teachers under the banner of several teacher organizations showed their solidarity and also raised the voice against the education and anti-teacher policies of the Delhi government. Also warned that the teachers will continue their protest till the government does not accept the demands.
DU teachers are upset about this matter
Teachers of 12 fully funded colleges of Delhi government are agitating for changes in the pattern of assistance, opposition to use of student funds for salary, irregular and inadequate grants and salaries, and withdrawal of appointment of Senior Account Officer.
Teachers Accused – More interference is being done since one year
The protesting teachers of DUTA alleged that the Delhi government has been interfering more in all these 12 fully funded colleges for about a year. Colleges are facing the problem of irregular and inadequate grants due to which teachers and staff have to wait for salary for many months.
The opposition of teachers has been going on continuously for the last 2 weeks
For the past two weeks, students of Delhi University have been opposing the anti-education policies of the Aam Adami Party under the leadership of Delhi University teacher Duta for their demands.
NDTF said – Government wants to open the way to privatization of education
National Democratic Teachers Front (NDTF) President Dr. AK Bhagi said that the Delhi government is opening the way for privatization by self-financing public higher education. An attempt is being made to change the pattern of existence to pay salary from the student fund.
With the privatization of education, education will be out of the reach of poor and deprived society. The Delhi government is boasting about the model of education but in reality, it is keeping the autonomy of Delhi University to implement anti-poor policies in higher education.
Dr. Bhagi said that the Delhi government is taking illegal, undemocratic, and unethical actions one after the other to acquire these colleges. He said that NDTF will strongly oppose it.
