The Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA) Thursday went on a one-day strike to protest the discontinuation of services of 12 ad-hoc teachers at Vivekananda College.

Their services were not renewed after April 29. Five among them were battling Covid along with their families at the time when they had received the information.

One of the ad-hoc teachers said seven of these 12 belonged to reserved categories (four OBC and three SC), and most of them were the sole earning members in their families.

DUTA President Rajib Ray said, “Acting Principal Dr Nina Hindrajog has refused to listen to any voice of reason and is running the college as her fiefdom.”

Earlier, six members of the Academic Council and Executive Council had also written to Vice-Chancellor P C Joshi against the move.
