President s intervention sought as 2 DU professors tussle for HoD s post
| Wednesday | 9th October, 2019
Two veteran professors Sheoraj Singh Bechain and KN Tripathi have claimed for the seat, but fight "over seniority" has created an issue in the department.
However, speaking to Millennium Post, Bechain said, "On September 12, I was asked to do some formalities, after which I told that I will be made HoD.
Apparently, this would have been the first time that a Dalit professor would have filled the post.
Meetings are taking place to decide who will get the post," said Bechain.
While, Bechain's supporters have claimed that this is a case of "caste discrimination", but professors at the Hindi Department feel otherwise.
