Indian Express editorial on the four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP) controversy (‘Four-year dead end’ June 23) While it is difficult to disagree with its condemnation of the University Grants Commission’s (UGC’s) move on the FYUP it is disappointing to read it hailing the FYUP as a transformatory educational exercise It seems the IE team has not taken the trouble to go through the content of the programme Nor has it examined its basic structure It is so illogical disjointed shabby and trivialising in its approach that to call it comparable in any manner to the US’s undergraduate programmes is nothing less than bizarre The UGC has been unprincipled in its response all along Last year weeks before the initiation of the FYUP and well ahead of admissions to it we appealed to the ministry of human resource development and the UGC to intervene in accordance with its act We were told that the UGC had no role to play as the university was an autonomous body and had complete freedom to decide upon its course structure and duration One needs to point out that it is the duty of the UGC to ensure that the degrees offered by different universities are comparable in quality Why were we opposed to it For several reasons One the basic structure was never discussed at the faculty level and processes were violated Two the structure in itself is academically flawed It proposes three types of certificates: diploma bachelor and bachelor (honours) While logically you should have three different curriculum designs to address the needs of the respective programmes the FYUP sought to do it through a single curriculum which is just not possible Effectively the diploma and simple bachelor degree are nothing but fractured pieces of the honours programme The foundation courses (FC) being celebrated as an innovation are so trivial and thoughtless that students feel humiliated at being asked to study them Gautam Bhan has written a long critique of them in the Economic and Political Weekly also available on Kafila It makes it very clear that the FYUP has failed to understand the philosophy behind the FC as practised in US universities No self-respecting university that takes academics seriously would agree to a change of this nature and scale in barely two months without even allowing the teaching community to participate in it Apart from this we expect a newspaper like the IE to examine the internal life of Delhi University closely For the last three and half years we have been living in emergency-like conditions Threats abuses victimisation (deduction of salary for participation in demonstrations or protests denial of promotion for being critical of the FYUP) crass regionalism casteism corruption and bribing of students by inflating their grades are some of the tactics The only bookshop on campus has been shuttered We are not given permission to hold meetings or seminars Mediocrity rules DU has been so badly damaged that it requires a real visionary and healer to rescue it from its present state The writer is a professor of Hindi at the University of Delhi For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsIt’s not surprising that that the BJP has chosen to brazen out the serious charges of impropriety and corruption both at the Centre and in the states rather than subjecting itself to the test of high standards that it swore by because it’s indeed a party with a difference There are no two ways about the fact that the Congress-led UPA was steeped in corruption and impropriety However what was encouraging was that the party didn’t resist public pressure for too long or deflect attention through mealy-mouthed spokespersons or malicious cyber squads Every time they came under attack the UPA ministers were asked to resign and prove their innocence Not that the Congress didn’t try to save them but the party didn’t brazen it out Every single person who was alleged of corruption or impropriety during the UPA ultimately resigned PTI image Compare it with the BJP the party with a difference that promised good governance and zero-tolerance to corruption Despite clear evidence of misuse of office explicit conflict of interest and even pecuniary benefits the party chose to justify and protect Sushma Swaraj and Vasundhara Raje in Lalit-gate No amount of proof was good enough for the BJP to concede political misdemeanour because the party had decided not to give in to public scrutiny Citing legalese the party tried to pull the wool over the eyes of its opponents and the media Its stand was no different on the allegations against Maharashtra minister Pankaja Munde (corruption) Union minister Smriti Irani (fake education claims) and Maharashtra chief minister DevendraFadnavisand Union minister Kiren Rijju (abuse of power) And the most shocking was the Vyapam scam which has metamorphosed into a killer epidemic under Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan Until Tuesday the party was not even open toexternal scrutiny even as people connected with the scamdied like flies The same brazenness of mis-governance was also seen in the appointments of Sangh ideologues with dubious credentials to key public institutions the latest being a small-time actor with a laughable portfolio heading the prestigious Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) in Pune FTII students as well as the film fraternity across the country felt slighted outraged and are up in arms but the party doesn’t care The UPA took a decade to decay but the BJP is showing signs of a deeper malaise in its first year itself However it doesn’t want a diagnosis and treatment It’s not benign denial but an undemocratic defiance This brazenness is what makes the BJP different from the Congress not its commitment to transparency and corruption-free governance In an interview with Times of India on Wednesday noted film-maker Anand Patwardhan summarises it lucidly: “This is not Congress rule where despite massive corruption the government was somewhat vulnerable to public pressure The Sangh Parivar is made of different mettle As you can gauge from the Raje and Swaraj episodes they have decided to brazen out anything and everything no matter what the consequences” This is exactly what Home Minister Rajanth Singh’s early defiance meant when he said"our ministers do not have to resign This is not their (Congress’) government This is NDA government" Patwardhan’s opinion is bang on Compared to the present government when there was pressure on the Congress to sack its ministers Shashi Tharoor and Ashwini Kumar the party did resist first but ultimately gave up The Congress could have easily brazened it out by citing that there was absolutely nothing against them on record let alone any charge of corruption Tharoor didn’t make money on the IPL or influence the BCCI to get Kochi the franchise Sunanda Puskhar who apparently had sweat equity on the Kochi team was not his wife then The charge against Kumar was that he tried to influence the CBI as the law minister But in the end they both resigned for nothing more than alleged impropriety because that’s what the public and media wanted Going by that yardstick all the BJP ministers who are on the dock should have gone by now But they wont because the BJP and the Sangh Parivar as Patwardhan says is made of different mettle Going by its record of just one year in office it’s really hard to fathom what exactly is the BJP’s self-proclaimed high standard for impropriety and transparency If there was no conflict of interest in the case of Raje and Swaraj what exactly is BJP’s definition or standard for the term In retrospect how do its leaders justify their demand for the resignation of Tharoor and Kumar How does the BJP justify good governance if its ministers hold up flights of state run airlines How does it justify transparency if it’s unwilling to furnish details for RTI queries on Lalit-gate and resist external investigations into deadly scams such as Vyapam How does it justify good governance if it keeps posting ineligible lightweights and people who make false claims on their education to critical jobs Accountability transparency and fairness are essential principles of good governance and these terms are well understood across the
