A delegation of ABVP and DUSU met the Joint Secretary(CU) of the Ministry of Human Resource and Development regarding the ongoing teachers’ protest in the university. The DUSU has demanded the withdrawal of the university letter dated 28th August.
The delegation emphasized the disturbance of the ecosystem of the university and the loss to the student community because of the ongoing protests. It demanded the interference of the HRD Minister to resolve the problems and bring about normalcy.
ABVP through Joint Secretary, MHRD has put forward the demand to HRD Minister that the process of permanent appointments is started at the earliest and that all the vacancies be filled within 6 months by permanent appointments.
Sidharth Yadav, State Secretary, ABVP Delhi said,
“The grave problem being faced by the University today has been brought about by the irresponsible attitude of the Vice-Chancellor who has not been paying heed to the complaints of teachers. This is the same administration of the University of Delhi which earlier rejected the demands of DUSU due to its shortsightedness and irresponsible attitude.
The students of Delhi University face various problems at present including administrative corruption in hostels, non-completion of admission process in stipulated period, non-declaration of the results on time, non-completion of M.Phil and Ph.D. admission process in many departments in the ongoing session, the pathetic situation of central library and no availability of seats in proportion to students among other issues but the administration in leadership of Professor Yogesh Tyagi, has been unsuccessful in making any progress in his tenure on any of these points.
Many important posts have not been filled in the ongoing tenure of Prof. Yogesh Tyagi because of which administrative condition of University has been deteriorating constantly. The situation demands that instant measures be taken for the betterment of the University.”
Akshit Dahiya, DUSU President and Shivangi Kharwal, DUSU Joint Secretary in a joint statement said, “In reference to the present scenario, MHRD should interfere to improve the situation and to make it normal by reappointing all the ad hoc professors and the University administration should take back the circular issued on 28th August. Permanent appointments have not been made in the University for a long time, so the administration should take immediate steps to start the permanent appointments. DUSU will not allow any kind of compromise with students’ future.”
The delegation consisted of State Secretary Sidharth Yadav, DUSU President Akshit Dahiya, DUSU Joint Secretary Shivangi Kharwal, and Rohini Zone Convener Gaurav Channa.
