DU ad-hoc teachers on hunger strike, demand immediate absorption
The teachers, who began their strike outside the Faculty of Arts, said that despite the bone-chilling cold in the national capital, they will support each other and continue the strike.
Teachers working without leave, increment for years, claims AAD President
Aditya Narayan Misra, President, Academics for Action and Development (AAD), said, "We are sitting outside the Faculty of Arts gate and it is very cold. It's very difficult, but we are supporting each other."
"We demand the absorption of ad-hoc and temporary teachers in Delhi University. These teachers have been working for years without any leave, maternity leave and increment," he added.
Like Rajasthan, MP, we want a committee for DU: Misra
There are 4,600 ad-hoc teachers working in the Delhi University.
They have all the required qualifications prescribed by the University Grants Commission (UGC), said Misra.
Congress national President Rahul Gandhi has also raised this issue.
Further going, Misra said that In Rajasthan, they have appointed a committee. In Madhya Pradesh, they are in the process. We are demanding that DU also do the same.
