New Delhi: Delhi University teachers will
hold a demonstration outside the Vice Chancellor`s office next
week to protest his "undemocratic ways" and his failure to
consult them on issues of critical importance.

The Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) will
hold the day-long protest on January 12 to demand that they,
as part of the varsity`s mechanisms, be heard by the
administration.

DUTA president Amar Deo Sharma said at a press conference
that the teachers union was disappointed by the fact that Vice
Chancellor Dinesh Singh`s had consistently ignored them even
as he has gone about announcing major future plans for the
varsity.

"We will hold a protest on January 12 outside his office
to draw home this point," Sharma said.

He also alleged that the disproportionate marks obtained
by students in recent results were highly unusual and could
very well be termed a "marks scam".

Following the protest, the DUTA Executive Council will
meet on January 24, while a General Body Meeting will be held
on January 31.

DUTA officials also drew attention to the fact that
hiring was virtually on hold in the university, even when
4,000 posts were lying vacant.

"The Vice Chancellor is completely ignoring us when we
want to work with him for the benefit of the university," he
said.
