Deputy CM and education minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia has ordered the directorate of higher education to take action against Delhi University (DU) for not implying with the procedures in the constitution of governing body (GB) in six colleges. He has directed to initiate legal action against DU with regard to the irregularities related to the governing bodies of 6 colleges.
Manish Sisodia said on Tuesday that, “The colleges have been functioning with truncated governing bodies since March 2019. I have been informed that despite repeated reminders to send names of 6 nominees to the colleges concerned, DU has not sent the complete list”.
According to sources, DU had been sent “repeated reminder” to release the names of the 6 nominees of the Delhi government but the institutions have not responded to it.
These institutions include Lakshmibai College, Kalindi College, Keshav Mahavidyalaya, Aditi College, Maharishi Valmiki College of Education, and Deen Dayal Upadhyay College.
Some of these colleges have even begun the process of election of the chairperson that too in the absence of the complete panel.
Sisodia added, “This seems to indicate a conspiracy to cover up corruption in these colleges. Since DU has not responded to the repeated correspondence of Delhi government, the directorate of higher education should move legal proceedings against it”.
However, in the response to Sisodia’s action Balaram Pani, dean of colleges said that due to the prevailing COVId-19 situation, executive meetings have not been held yet. This is the reason for the delay in clearing the names.
Pani conferred, “Of 140 names sent by the government, 134 have been cleared. There were certain reservations on 6 names, so we sent them back to the government. The government reverted to continuing with those names. But before sending these names to the colleges, it has to be cleared by the executive council”.
