According to I. Elangovan, a selection grade lecturer of the Voorhees College at Vellore, his nomination for one of the 10 vacancies from the affiliated and approved college category was rejected by the university on August 29, on the ground that a suspended lecturer could not contest.
He said his ``suspension itself was without jurisdiction, and hence it could not constitute a ground for rejection'' (of nomination). A teacher, ``even if placed under suspension, continues to remain a teacher and there is no snapping of the employer-employee relationship'', he said. The Thiruvalluvar University Act did not provide for any disqualification on the ground of suspension of a teacher.
The petitioner prayed for a stay of the poll proceedings, and sought to set aside the rejection of his nomination by the authorities.
Justice K. Govindarajan ordered notices to the Government and the university, and posted the matter for Monday for orders.
Meanwhile, another suspended lecturer of the Voorhees College, Suresh Manohar, has also moved the High Court challenging his suspension as well as the provisions of the ESMA. Mr. Justice Govindarajan admitted the plea and ordered notices to the Government.
