Supreme Court lawyer and former AAP member, Prashant Bhushan has sent a legal notice to Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia over the government’s alleged “backdoor” regularisation of contractual teachers.

Bhushan, who was expelled from AAP earlier this year, said the Delhi government’s June 10 circular for “exclusive” regularisation of existing guest teachers was in contravention of a Supreme Court ruling.

“Legal notice seeking fair opportunity to all eligible candidates to appear for DSSSB examination for recruitment in teacher positions irrespective of their previous engagement as contract/casual teachers in adherence to Supreme Court’s judgement,” it said.

“Making guest/contract teachers regular without an opportunity to others for such appointments, amounts to back door entry and illegal says SC,” Bhushan said.

The notice said “equality of opportunity” was the hallmark of public employment.

      While I agree with mr.Bhusan, I am wondering if India indeed have equality of opportunity as Supreme Court ruling. If so, there will not be any reservation vin jobs, reservation in promotion If this is how Supreme curt ruled then , judges are drinking lots of coll aid.

          Selective regularization of contract teachers without facing recruitment exam is called corruption. AAP government within one year of governance plague with corruption and nepotism with impunity because Arvind kejri and his teams is law. More acts of corruption of will be in the pipeline. Even AAP MLAs may surfaces all type of complaints about irregularities four year down the line.
