Manish Sisodia Writes To Election Commission Opposing Recruitment In DU During Elections

In his letter to the Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora on Tuesday, Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said his government doesn’t agree to the ministry’s proposal for recruitment to colleges of Delhi University during the election season, whether they are partially or fully funded by the government. The minister condemned this move and stated it to be a violation of the model code of conduct in force for the upcoming elections.

In a letter to the poll panel, it mentioned in view of the UGC mandate to provide teaching and non-teaching faculty before start of new academic year in June 2019, the Election Commission of India is requested to give its clearance/permission from model code of conduct for starting/continuing the recruitment process for regular teaching and non-teaching vacant posts in central universities.This letter was sent to the EC on April 1 and a reply is awaited.

The minister added that governing bodies in colleges of Delhi University have not been constituted as required under the norms despite the insistence of the Delhi government. The college governing bodies handle admission and appointment-related matters among other things required for smooth functioning of colleges.

The non-formation of governing body in time raises doubts of unethical means and corruption in appointments. It could also be done to gain political favours at the time of elections.The Election Commission should not let any such proposal pass the letter added.
