A teachers’ delegation on Saturday met Congress president Sonia Gandhi on the issue of recent UGC gazette notification which, according to the delegation, would render thousands of teachers jobless.

The teachers associated with the Academics for Action & Development (AAD) were led by former president of Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA).

During meeting with Gandhi, the delegation pointed out the anti-teachers edicts in the third amendment of the UGC gazette notification. They also apprised the Congress president of the stir they have launched against the notification.

The delegation, led by former president of Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) Dr Aditya Narayan Misra, alleged that nearly 4,500 teachers of Delhi University and around one lakh teachers of state and central universities across the country would be affected.

“These teachers having all qualifications and expertise with long teaching experiences are facing no avenue for their promotions due to stringent measures in the form of Academic Performance Indicator (API),” said Dr Rajesh K Jha, Joint Secretary, DUTA.

“She was also briefed about the complete participation of DU teachers in the ongoing struggle,” said Dr Jha.

AAD delegation requested her to intervene into the matter so that the ‘crisis’ in the higher education is averted by the complete roll back of the UGC Gazette Notification (3rd Amendment) and the API.

“She assured the delegation of her support and affirmed that these measures from MHRD shall destroy the institutions of higher learning which was carefully nurtured from the time of Nehrvian era and expressed that the higher education has always played transformative role in our society,” he said.
Among others who were present in the delegation were Dr CS Rawat, Vice President, DUTA, and Seema Das, Member, DUTA Executive.

He said that the YSRCP government had fulfilled most of the promises made to farmers and highlighted that Rs 13,463 crore have been directly credited to farmers’ accounts in last 18 months.

Kannababu assailed Telugu Desam Party (TDP) national President Nara Chandrababu Naidu and his son Nara Lokesh for allegedly undermining Reddy’s aerial survey of Nivar- affected districts.

He showed a photograph of Naidu conducting a similar survey when he was CM while enjoying a hot beverage in helicopter and compared it with his successor’s survey.

The Minister said that Reddy takes comprehensive stock of the ground situation whenever natural calamities strike the state.

According to Kannababu, crops on 6.56 lakh hectares of land was damaged during recent torrential downpour. He said the revenue enumeration is still on.

“The CM told us to finish the enumeration by December 10 so as to pay compensation to the affected farmers by December-end. The Agriculture Department and other concerned ones are working towards that goal,” he said.

Kannababu said that the Chief Minister had instructed officials to buy crops from farmers even if it had changed colour.

Meanwhile, the winter session saw a decent turnout of MLAs, including opposition leader Naidu, who was seen wearing a mask.
