DUTA strike won’t affect DU admission process:
A DU college principal, requesting anonymity, said the strike was called without consultation and planning and that is why it did not affect the admission process.
However, a DU official expressed apprehension about the admission process getting affected due to the strike on Tuesday. According to the DUTA, the hasty implementation of Economically Weaker Section reservation in teaching positions is going to result in the displacement of hundreds of ad-hoc teachers.
They had called for a two-day strike on Monday and Tuesday and urged teachers to not do official work.
