Goa varsity withdraws teacher recruitment ads after objections

Press Trust of India  |  Panaji 

Amid strong objections from the Forward Party (GFP), the University has withdrawn its advertisements issued for recruitment of teachers, in which it had dropped the 15-year clause.

The GFP, a constituent of the BJP-led government in the state, had expressed its opposition to the advertisements, saying the exclusion of the clause would lead to non-Goans applying for all the 80-odd vacancies.

In a release issued on Thursday, the university said, "The University has withdrawn the three advertisements released on March 8, 2019 for recruitment of teaching positions, including for backlog, shortfall and regular vacancies."

Goa Youth Forward, the youth wing of the GFP, had taken up the issue after it noticed that the advertisements did not mention the clause.

Taking strong objection to the advertisements, had recently said that they were willing to go anywhere to protect the interest of Goans.

"And if our government has made a mistake, then we will weaponise them (youth) to ensure that Goanness is protected," he had said.

The had complained to the Election Commission (EC) against Sardesai over his "weaponising" the youth remark, and demanded that he be charged with sedition.
