Agra: Uttar Pradesh government has blacklisted 2 professors for not knowing who Akhilesh Yadav is and when India gained its Independence. This came to light during evaluation of answer sheets of BA English, history and economics at the Institute of Tourism and Hotel Management (ITHM) when the centre’s evaluation coordinator grilled the two teachers after doubting their credentials. Both have valid degrees and teach at colleges affiliated with UP universities.
Both have been teaching for more than a decade, while Anil Kumar Pal, associate professor in Economics, is working at Veer Bahadur Singh Purvanchal University, Jaunpur and Shyam Bahadur, associate professor in English is working at Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Rohilkhand University, Bareilly.
Luvkush Mishra, Evaluation coordinator and ITHM director told, “The English teacher used wrong grammar while writing a two-line application letter seeking permission for evaluating papers. And he spelled evaluation as ‘evalluation’. Shyam Bahadur also failed to answer basic questions about the subject. Pal failed to explain the meaning of ‘audit’ and didn’t know what ‘IMF’ stands for. Both teachers have been blacklisted. It seems they have been evaluating papers for years and have extensive teaching experience.”
