Du"S Ma English Department Protest Competes For Ear

News Information

English department in the North Campus of Delhi University witnessed two sets of protests on Tuesday. Students of English literature protested against quality of teaching by new recruits, the head of the department's inaction in the matter and the attempt of one group to grab attention.Meanwhile, another group protested against online comments made by a teacher on a social networking forum which had allegedly been hacked. A case in this regard has been filed with police. But students, who had earlier objected to the teaching standards of the new recruits, see it as an attempt to divert attention away from the "real issue".About 150 students gathered at arts faculty demanding a general body meeting of all teachers and students. "The HOD didn't agree saying he has no authority to call one," said a student. The students, however, are planning one for 10am on Thursday. They said it will include students from both campuses though only one teacher had agreed to attend so far. The students are also threatening to go on strike if their demand-assurance that there will be a GBM on Thursday-isn't met by 1pm on Wednesday.Earlier, over 200 students of MA English signed a written complaint to the head of the department about "the dismal teaching skills" of "three newly-appointed teachers for English".Since then the students have been demanding a GBM. Meanwhile, a group-Students for Academic Excellence and Inclusive Growth-demanded arrest and immediate termination of a teacher in the English department for using abusive language against a teacher in history department. English students are of the view that SAEIG is trying to divert attention away from more pressing concerns.
