New Delhi: The teachers of Delhi University's St Stephen's College have announced a protest against Principal Valson Thampu on Friday. The teachers demand that the charges and the show cause notice issued to Professor MS Frank be dropped.
The announcement comes a day after Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA) held a protest against the Vice Chancellor.
The staff association of the college passed a resolution on Thursday condemning the "unjust" and "malafide" actions of the principal against teaching and non-teaching staff of the college.
The teachers demand that charges and a show cause notice issued to Professor MS Frank be dropped.
"Another important catalyst for the dharna is the derogatory and threatening remarks in the minutes of the governing body meeting against a woman employee of the college who had taken up her complaint of sexual harassment.
The college faculty has condemned any attempt by Valson Thampu to pressurise the complainant to withdraw her complaint or to take action against her," the resolution signed by 44 teachers states.
