Teachers of Delhi University organised a protest outside the Vice-Chancellor’s office on Wednesday over the demand of absorption of ad-hoc teachers in the University.

“To express the collective anger at the failure of the government and the vice-chancellor to resolve their long-standing demands, thousands of teachers turned up in large numbers outside the gate number 1 of V-C office on Wednesday, the success of the shutdown is a testimony to the fact that the teachers are unwilling to tolerate the government’s “single-minded agenda” to destroy public-funded education.‚Äù ¬†Delhi University Teacher‚Äôs Association (DUTA) President Rajib Ray¬†told Business Standard.

“We have three main demands. First, we are demanding the absorption of all ad-hoc teachers. Second, there are many teachers who are waiting for their promotion as they did not get promotion since 2007, 2008 etc. And third is that the retired teachers are not getting their pension. Their pension is not being settled and the university is not giving them a pension.¬†We fall under (the) old-promotion scheme called Merit Promotion Scheme (MPS), which was started in 1998. Under this, we got promotion long back, but now we are not getting anything as the V-C is not doing anything at all”¬†Professor¬†Neenu Kumar from Aditi Mahavidyalaya was quoted as saying.

Several teachers continued the indefinite hunger strike outside the arts faculty in North Campus.Many of them had joined the protest outside the V-C office as well.The strike of ad-hoc teachers, who are demanding the same benefits which a permanent teachers gets entered its ninth day today.
