Why does a backlog exist in central universities and institutions for other backward communities and groups despite being granted reservation? What ails the centre to announce and broadcast benefits for them at the last minute for clinching electoral contests and titles? How can one reconcile with their misrepresentation in premier centres of excellence given their competency and calibre?
Shouldn’t they be absorbed as permanent academic faculties rather than guests and ad-hocs carrying disastrous consequences for their career goals? It would be best if the Ministry of Education can involve all the stakeholders in resolving this mess, which may lead to chaos like that of December 2019.
Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA) had successfully persuaded, mobilized and organized two hundred teachers from different colleges camping and congregating outside DU’s Vice-Chancellor residence demanding their rights. Still, the administration appears to be repulsive and reluctant in acknowledging the genuine grievances of those toiling for position and place.
Private universities are no better either with specific sets of rules, regulations and legislations structurally and systematically discriminating and disappointing those who are not well off- socially, economically and educationally. It is upon the newly appointed MoE Dharmendra Pradhan to look into the fixes forming a committee amending changes ensuring transparency and accountability as for the lack of it may raise eyebrows.
