Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday wrote to DU Deputy Chancellor Yogesh Singh asking him to cancel interviews for tenured faculty, which were scheduled at some of the 28 colleges fully or partially funded by the state government.
The minister, in the letter, alleged that the appointments were made without government approval, and that the decision had financial implications for the state government.
“Interviews for tenured positions were held at some of the 28 colleges funded by GNCTD. I understand the importance of conducting interviews to fill important teaching positions, but any financial decisions made for these colleges create financial implications on GNCTD as well. Therefore , scheduled interviews should be canceled immediately,” the letter read.
Mr Sisodia, in the letter, also instructed Yogesh Singh not to take any financial decisions without the approval of a regulatory body that has adequate representation from GNCTD.
“Given the importance of filling teaching positions, the process of establishing a regulatory body at 28 GNCTD universities must be accelerated. Any decisions with financial implications, including hiring for permanent positions in tertiary institutions, must be taken after approval by a fully functioning governing body,” he said.
