Sisodia on hiring teaching and non-teaching staff in central universities
The deputy CM had written to the VC asking for an extension in February itself as the term of the GB had ended on March 9.
Manish Sisodia, deputy Chief Minister wrote to the chief election commissioner (CEC), opposing to the approval seeking by Ministry of Human Resource and Development (MHRD) for hiring teaching and non-teaching staff in central universities.
"The permission should not be given for 28 Delhi University colleges funded by Delhi government, as the governing body has not been constituted in these institutions," the deputy CM said in his letter to CEC Sunil Arora.
"The governing bodies have not been constituted in the colleges, despite the insistence of the Delhi government. This raises doubts of unethical means and corruption in appointments. This may also be an attempt to give political favors during elections," Sisodia wrote in the letter.
Sisodia had written a letter to the DU vice-chancellor, Yogesh Tyagi as well, on not giving allowance to the term of the governing body. The deputy CM had written to the VC asking for an extension in February itself as the term of the GB had ended on March 9.
"The Delhi government does not agree to the proposal when model code of conduct is in force," said the letter. There are 28 Delhi government funded colleges, out of which 12 are fully funded, while 16 of them receive 5% assets from the government.
