Vice-Chancellor of B.S. Abdur Rahman University J.A.K. Tareen has joined the Aam Aadmi Party. The 67-year-old educationist, a Padma Shri recipient, said it was his increasing frustration over the government’s failure to implement education-related policies that drove him to join the new party.

Professor Tareen was a member of the UGC, and the Vice-Chancellor of Pondicherry University and two universities in Kashmir.

Congratulations to AAP & to Mr Tareen.
This should inspire, intellects from all the subjects to participate in
this great effort to curb the corruption.Only then can India have a
clean administration.
Its high time that all the National parties cleanup themselves & look
for more credible contestants.

I think everyone who joins AAP now, should be investigated for any acts of corruption, nepotism (mostly by academicians), mismanagement, dereliction of duty etc., There are now many who aren't exactly clean claiming to be honest.

post and joined the party.

Kudos to Prof. J. A.K. Tareen, adds another feather in his cap by rightly joining AAP. He, himself being a visionary, an educationist and a great leader has found a solace in a revolutionary political ideology marked with commitment, advocacy and action at Aam Aadmi Level. Thankyou Sir and Almighty bless u with peace, health and success in this life and hereafter

The time has come when right thinking men should come forward and join politics. It should not be left to the mercy of few individuals.AAP has shown that election can be contested with small amount of money. The general voter must have a better alternative to choose from.There is not much difference between present political leaders.If educated persons come forward they will be welcomed.If we really wish that money and muscle power should not dominate the scene ,we ought to struggle for that. Its a welcome sign that such persons are now attracted towards politics. Let us hope Delhi elections prove a turning point in Indian Parliamentary history.
