Over a hundred students of the Mathematics department of the Delhi University marched to the office of Vice-Chancellor, demanding their right to proper teaching facilities.
“A teacher who was supposed to teach us Module Theory, a main subject last semester, was absent throughout. We want proper teaching. We did not join this university to face such problems,” said Manoj Rawal, an MA student at St. Stephen’s college.
The students held placards and shouted slogans in front of the V-C’s office against the attitude of the teacher and the department. “We only had a substitute teacher during the last four weeks of the semester. For the rest of the weeks, we were forced to study by ourselves,” Rawal added.
According to officials, this is not for the first time that the teacher has failed to fulfil her responsibility. “This problem has been there for more than two years. She has some differences with the department,” the official said.
The students, meanwhile, don’t want the teacher to come back and teach them anymore. “Now that we have protested against her, she may not give us the marks we deserve in the internal assessment,” the protesting students said.
Meanwhile, students of BSc Life Sciences also protested outside V-C’s office against the bad result across colleges. “Only 25 % of the students have managed to pass which is unrealistic,” said Ajay Chhikara, DUSU president.
