How to appoint Basic Education Minister’s brother from EWS quota? Siddharthnagar administration and university sent this report in Raj Bhavan
Education Minister gave clarification
These allegations were dismissed by the state education minister Satish Dwivedi as baseless. Satish Chandra Dwivedi said that he did not interfere in the process the university had to do for selection. On the EWS quota, he said that there is a difference in income between him and his brother. At the same time, the minister also made it clear that if anyone finds anything wrong, then he is ready to investigate.
The university said – full adherence to the procedure in the appointment
According to sources, the university in its report sent to the Raj Bhavan said that applications were sought in October-November 2019 for the appointment of teachers in 22 departments of the university. This process continued till December. Subsequently, the appointment process was affected due to Kovid infection. Screening of applications began from July 2020 and candidates were shortlisted based on academic performance and API scores. The appointment has been done as per rules. It is seen whether the applicant is eligible for that quota at the time of application. All original certificates are sought from the candidate after selection. Reservation certificate is also required to be submitted.

10 people were interviewed
Department-wise interviews were held after November. The interview was held on February 27 for Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology. In the committee made for this, two experts and faculty deans nominated from Raj Bhavan were members. The committee shortlisted 10 interviewees, with Arun Dwivedi in second place. Based on interviews, APIs and academic scores, Arun came first and was appointed.
‘Administration issues EWS certificate’
Arun’s certificate of EWS was issued by the district administration and was fulfilling all the qualifications on the cut off date of the application. The certificate was issued in 2019 after examining the documents. It is valid for one year. After a year, again, the application is given the certificate only after the re-examination of the documents and facts. I have not had any complaints yet.
Opposition also raised questions
Opposition parties are also questioning this. Congress National General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said that the brother of UP’s Minister of Basic Education became the appointment of Assistant Professor after becoming a poor. Millions of young people are looking for jobs, but those who are ‘opportunities in disaster’ are looking for jobs. They are making fun of both poverty and reservation. AAP’s UP in-charge Sanjay Singh has also called it an insult to the youth who are eating sticks for the job. Samajwadi Party has tweeted that only corruption is left in the state. The appointment should be canceled with the resignation of the minister.
