29 August DUTA Elections

Elect Rajib Ray as President!

Save Public Universities, DU and DUTA!

नई शिक्षा नीति के दुष्प्रभावों से बचकर,
दिल्ली विश्वविद्यालय के शिक्षक गरिमापूर्वक शिक्षण कर सकें,
प्रमोशन व पेंशन पा सकें, शासन- प्रशासन के समक्ष आत्मसम्मान से खड़े होकर
अपने अधिकारों के लिए संघर्ष कर सकें।

Polling: Thursday 29 August 2019, 10 am – 5 pm, Arts Faculty

हक़ की लड़ाई अंजाम तक!
Defend Public Universities

The assault on public education best described in Shri Javadekar’s words as the Government “striving to introduce a liberalized regime in the education sector” is a big step toward completing the task of the Narsimha Rao Government that ushered in the Liberalization-Privatisation-Globalization regime.
