SC issued show cause to Govt Decision

The Supreme Court has issued show cause notices to the Office of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, Ministry of Education and Sports and Tribhuvan University demanding reasons on why the cabinet took decision to appoint TU’s part-time teachers on contract basis.

The Supreme Court has called the authorities to furnish the reply within 15 days. The cabinet had on August 22 decided to appoint 900 part-time teachers on contract basis and to create 900 more posts for part-time teachers in the university.

A single bench of Justice Pawan Kumar Ojha issued the order responding a writ petition jointly filed by permanent residents of Chitwan district Bishnu Hari Koirala and Krishna Prasad Nure.

The petitioners have claimed the decision is against the rule of law and against the Working Procedures of TU Teachers and Officials Service Conditions 2051 BS. The petitioners have sought the apex court’s certiorari order to scrap the decision and stay order not to implement the cabinet decision.
