A group of 112 teachers of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) have announced their dissociation from the University’s teachers’ body, JNU Teachers’ Association (JNUTA) following inaction against the intimidation of the teachers by miscreants.
The teachers have also claimed to have broken all ties with JNUTA. In a recent statement released by the group, they said that they have decided to dissociate themselves from JNUTA from November 20 2019. They also stated about dissociation from all the resolutions of JNUTA made since November 1.
The group of 112 teachers have taken the step over inaction by JNUTA against the constant attacks, confinement and intimidation, allegedly, by a group of miscreants among the students since October 28.
The statement further said that JNUTA had refused to condemn the attacks on teachers and their family members in the most brazen manner. The group of teachers, in the statement, stated about the attacks on the wardens at nights and abuse and attack on family members to instill fear.
It may be mentioned here that JNUTA had taken out a peace march in support of JNU students who had been demanding a complete fee rollback along with other demands.
Massive protests kicked off after JNU raised the fees of students’ single room and mess charges among others.
