Delhi University instructors on Wednesday held a strike to protest against the supposed non-payment of salaries to workers of 12 varsity colleges completely funded by the local government for the last 5 months. It was the very first day of the three-day strike called by the Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA).
” The obdurate position taken by the federal government, using flimsy reasons for not launching grants, has required teachers to strike work for 3 days (from September 16 to September 18) as they are at completion of their tether,” the DUTA said. “Things have now concerned such a pass that workers without incomes or pensions hesitate to tolerate this attack on their livelihood and have actually taken legal recourse to thwart the attack on their basic right to income,” it said. The teachers declared that DUTA office bearers’ efforts to get an appointment to fulfill Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to talk about the matter was cancelled at the last minute on Wednesday.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, in a press conference, said there is big misappropriation discovered in audit of Delhi University colleges and included that the government stands together with the instructors of DU. “The Delhi federal government has provided enough funds to the colleges for their projected wage requirements under the pattern of help,” he said. It is evident that the Delhi Government is attempting to divert attention with these repeated allegations of maladministration in these colleges,” it said.
