A day after Guru Nanak Girls College (GNGC), Ludhiana, principal, Charanjit Mahal, allegedly threw her walking stick at one of the committee members, Prof Rajesh Gill, during a visit to the said college, the varsity authorities are yet to take action in this regard.


Meanwhile, the Panjab University Teachers' Association (PUTA) has condemned the incident, while lending support to PU committee members, who had visited the Ludhiana college on Monday. The committee had visited GNGC on the direction of PU V-C to look into the complaint of harassment filed by about 21 faculty members of the college.

GNGC principal's husband Surjit Mahal allegedly too had misbehaved with the committee members. However, the college president, Gurdeep Singh, had denied all allegations, terming them concocted.

PUTA stated that it won't allow the dignity of university teachers to be compromised with at any cost. A note released by the teachers' body read: “If a university teacher is sent for any duty to any affiliated college, PUTA expects university to ensure his or her physical security and dignity of work”.

PUTA also said that this was not an isolated case, pointing out that in another case, an inspection team was not allowed to enter a college by its management. “Some of the university teachers were made to feel as if they were persona non grata when they went for inspection as asked by the PU administration,” read the PUTA statement.

Teachers' body also stated that they would appeal all teachers to boycott works related to affiliated colleges.
