DUTA demands Revocation of Suspension of Dr G.N. Saibaba
Saturday 7 May 2016
The Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) Executive, in its meeting held on April 27, 2016, discussed the matter of Dr G.N. Saibaba, Associate Professor, RLA College. The DUTA Executive condemns the attacks on Dr G.N. Saibaba and other teachers of the college and the failure of the administration in preventing such incidents.
The DUTA finds it unfortunate and unacceptable that, instead of taking responsibility for maintaining law and order in the College, the administration has asked Dr G.N. Saibaba not to come to the college because of the law and order situation. Instead, trumped-up charges are being levelled against him and misinformation being spread regarding the conditions of his bail. The DUTA noted that Dr G.N. Saibaba has been granted unconditional bail by the Supreme Court.
The DUTA is of the view that the Governing Body meeting of the college held on April 21, 2016 is patently illegal as the teacher representatives’ term had ended and the new teacher representatives were not invited to the meeting. The DUTA demands that the meeting be reconvened in a proper manner.
The DUTA also condemns the harassment meted out to Dr G.N. Saibaba by the one-member committee set up by the college in demanding documents not relevant to the case at hand.
The DUTA demands an immediate end to the persecution and harassment of Dr Saibaba and his suspension be revoked immediately and he be allowed to rejoin duty with immediate effect as per rules.
