Delhi University : The Delhi University Teacher’s Association (DUTA) will organize a protest on August 21. The demand is to release adequate grant-in-aid to 12 DU colleges funded by it.
DUTA stated that salaries have not been given to staff members since May. The overning bodies have been formed in nine out of 12 colleges which are fully funded by the government.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) alleged corruption in 12 DU colleges which the DUTA deemed as unsubstantiated allegations. “It is obvious that this is another ploy for their callous and inhuman act of not releasing the required Grant-in-Aid to these colleges, as a result of which employees in these colleges have gone without salaries for several months,” DUTA president Rajib Ray said.
