NEW DELHI:  The Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) today urged the Aam Aadmi Party government to withdraw its decision on freezing of funds to 28 colleges, saying it was "perturbed" by the move.     

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today directed the Finance Department to freeze the release of funds to 28 colleges funded by the Delhi government for "non-formation of the governing bodies".     

"The teachers and students of the 28 colleges are perturbed at your decision. While we completely support your insistence that governing bodies in these colleges must be formed, we cannot accept such a harsh decision which penalises teachers and students for no fault of theirs," DUTA president Nandita Narain said in a statement issued here.     

Roll back the decision and take up the matter with the vice chancellor directly, she added.     

The teachers' body also urged the VC for immediate formation of the governing bodies for all colleges.     

"We find no justification in the frivolous EC decision to delay the process of constituting a committee for a purpose that could have been easily sorted out within a working week. Now, due to no fault of theirs, teachers and students of the 28 Delhi government-funded colleges are being forced to face a funds freeze," Narain said.
