Can a person who is working as an Assistant Professor in a private engineering college contest in elections for Municipality counselor without resigning?

A.Dear Sir,
Yes, it seems you are not a permanent employee of private college as such you can contest for elections but there is some risk of losing your job if Management takes the issue seriously.
