THE Punjab and Haryana High Court, on Tuesday, issued contempt notices to Dr Jaspal Singh, vice-chancellor (V-C) of Punjabi University and A K Chawla, Registrar of the varsity, on a contempt petition filed by one Pawitter Singh.
Advocate H C Arora, counsel for the petitioner, contended in a petition filed by Harsharan Kaur and others (which included the present petitioner as well), that the high court had issued directions to the Punjabi University, on the basis of an undertaking it had given through its counsel, to fill up all vacant 414 non-teaching posts, then occupied by employees appointed on an ad-hoc or stop-gap arrangement basis, and to complete the process by May, 2010.
The petitioner stated that the respondents violated the directions issued by the court on May 28, 2009 and had been giving extensions to the ad-hoc and gap appointees till date.
He referred to the decision taken by the Syndicate of the university on June 11 for extending the tenure of 206 such non-teaching employees (ad-hoc peons / technical assistants / lab attendants) upto September 30.
According to the petitioner, the respondent authorities deliberately violated the directions of the court and frustrated those directions by still continuing with the ad-hoc non-teaching employees, who were to be replaced by regular or contractual employees through open competition before May, 2010.
