“Delhi government can expect us to form governing bodies in 28 fully and partially funded colleges by this week,” said Devesh Sinha, Dean of colleges for Delhi University.

“We have expedited the process of formulating governing bodies and communicated it to Delhi government as well,” Sinha told Mail Today.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia earlier stopped the funding of 28 colleges which are fully or partially funded by the Delhi government on the reason of unchecked corruption taking place in the colleges.

“Have ordered Finance department to stop funding for Delhi government-funded 28 Delhi University colleges, as DU is not willing to form governing bodies for last 10 months,” Sisodia tweeted on 1st August 2017.

“I can not allow unchecked corruption and irregularities to be sustained on Delhi government funds in the name of education,” Sisodia tweeted which caused a panic among the Delhi University especially among the administration and students of these 28 colleges supported by the Delhi government funds.
