200 candidates for 2 Sanskrit lecturer posts in JU
Aspirants dismayed over interview schedule
SYED AMJAD SHAH
Jammu, July 25: For two lecturer posts in Sanskrit department of Jammu University, advertised after a gap of eight years, over 200 aspirants were interviewed by the varsity on two days.
Official sources said nearly 100 candidates were from JU’s Sanskrit department, while rest from other states, making it a tough task for the panel to select the suitable candidate.
Even as the scholars were happy with the varsity for making recruitment in the department, they expressed dismay over the way interview was conducted. They regretted that only two days were kept for interviewing 200 candidates.
The interview of the Sanskrit scholars was scheduled on July 23 and 24, an aspirant said. “How could the selection panel do justice with all the candidates having higher qualification in the subject (Sanskrit)? The interview days should have been extended,” he said.
Notably, the long wait of Sanskrit scholars here in the JU ended with the publishing of advertisement for two vacant posts of lecturers. Faced with problems in the recent past, the varsity, according to the official, was unable to advertise the posts, despite pressure from the Sanskrit scholars, especially those, who were getting over aged after doing Ph.D and M.Phil in the language.
It was their long pending demand. They were repeatedly blaming the varsity authorities for delaying the recruitment of the Sanskrit lecturers in the department.
When contacted, no official from the university was available for the comment.
