The Aam Aadmi Party teachers’ organization will take part in the Delhi University’s executive and academic councils elections, a party leader informed on Wednesday. AAP MP Sushil Gupta said just the way the Kejriwal government had made significant developments inside government schools, the party expected to make similar qualitative modifications in Delhi University.
On behalf of the Aam Aadmi Party Teachers’ Organization, Gupta informed that Narendra Kumar Pandey has been nominated as the candidate of the Delhi Teachers Association (DTA) for the executive council and Sunil Kumar as the academic council candidate. The elections will take place on Friday.
Catering to media, DTA in charge Hansraj Suman said the BJP-led central government had been assuring for the past five years that they would regularise ad-hoc teachers. However, nothing has been accomplished. When our partners will be elected to the executive council, our priority will be to provide the same kinds of benefits to the ad-hoc teachers as the permanent teachers.
Additionally, he informed that Delhi University consists of more than 6,000 teachers and 40 percent of them are women who belong to the age of 30-50 years and are teaching in the university for the last 15-20 years. We will also guarantee that there should be a quota for the children of ad-hoc teachers in the university admission.
A committee was designed by a parliamentary committee and it implied that the SC, ST, OBC be provided reservation since 1997, but the Delhi University has never approved and implemented this decision, he said. It has also asked for reservation in the posts of professor and principal, he asserted.
