Teachers association has alleged that they have held demonstrations outside Delhi CM, Arvind Kejriwal’s house, and gone to Dy CM, but nobody listened to them.

Delhi University Teachers Association has demanded that 12 affiliated colleges of Delhi University, which are funded by the Delhi government, be taken over by the central government.

As per reports, Deen Dayal Upadhyay (DDU) college, one of the affiliated colleges of DU has decided to implement a five-day weekly timetable to save electricity and other operational costs. On the other hand, Aam Aadmi Party has been alleging that there is Rs 22 crore surplus fund lying with the college but neither it is letting the audit happen nor dispersing the amount to teachers.

DUTA has alleged that due to a fund deficit, pay cuts of teachers are happening for the last two years in 12 colleges under the Delhi government. “We've held demonstrations outside Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s house, went to Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, but nobody listened to us. We want the Central government to take these colleges under its wing,” said AK Bhagi, DUTA President.

The teachers association has also alleged that there is misgovernance in 20 more colleges under the Delhi government as the Governing bodies in those colleges have been politicized, “AAP workers have been appointed as members,” alleges Bhagi.
