Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) demanded stringent action against DU Vice-Chancellor (VC) Dinesh Singh for his "autocratic way" of handling administrative affairs.

DUTA expressed serious reservations over the agenda of meeting of Executive Council (EC) scheduled for 13 October.

"The listed agenda should have been taken in a regular meeting of the EC and does not warrant an emergent meeting and the big question is why no regular meeting of the EC was convened to consider these matters," said Abha Dev Habib, member EC.

The DUTA alleged that the agenda does not list constitution of the Search Committee (SC) and expressed the dismay over the same.

"The VC is acting in an autocratic way and has defied all norms of probity and placed his close acquaintances at important positions to brush aside his misdeeds," said Nandita Narain, DUTA President.
