After students' union, JNUTA to launch campaign against 'irregularities'
The teachers' association has decided to launch a long-term campaign against alleged irregularities in the administration and other issues
After the students' union, it is the Jawaharlal Nehru University Teachers Association (JNUTA) which has now decided to launch a long-term campaign against alleged irregularities in the administration and other issues "plaguing" the varsity. In its general body meeting held on August 1, the JNUTA decided to undertake a sustained campaign in the monsoon semester for teachers' rights, the JNU Act, and restoration of admissions to research programmes, among other issues.
"The JNUTA meeting resolves to frame and publicise a detailed charge sheet that demonstrates the myriad failures of the JNU V-C and his team in managing the affairs of the University," JNUTA president Ayesha Kidwai said in a release. The teachers' body has also called for a march on August 8 in defence of teachers' rights, besides conducting JNUTA's 'Khaali' (Empty) Classroom lecture series. "The series will be taught by the Centres, Schools, Special Centres whose research programmes have had zero admissions in the 2017-18 academic year," Kidwai said. A series of other resolutions were also passed in the meeting.
