St. Stephen’s College has approached Delhi High Court alleging that Delhi University (DU) is interfering in its internal matter of appointing full time principal for the college.
Earlier, the court has asked St. Stephen’s College to fill the principal’s post as soon as possible. DU has recently asked St. Stephen’s College to provide the list of all the potential candidates who have applied for the job, so that they can decide, who should be selected for the post. St. Stephen’s alleges that this is direct infringement of their fundamental right of appointing their staff on their own. High Court has asked for an explanation from DU by Friday.
