BU Syndicate demands probe into V-C's actions

The two members A P Ranganath and G H Madaiah met Governor H R Bhardwaj on Tuesday and urged him to send the V-C on leave till the inquiry is complete. The Governor had recently constituted an inquiry committee headed by retired Judge of the Patna High Court to probe complaints made by the V-C against the registrars of the varsity. The syndicate members have now requested the Governor to include their complaints against Prabhu Dev too in the terms of reference of the inquiry.

Syndicate member, A P Ranganath, confirmed it saying: “We have submitted our representation, which includes complaints that we have made against the V-C previously. The Governor’s response was positive and he has assured us that financial mismanagement by the V-C will be included in the inquiry.”

Some of the allegations made by the two syndicate members against the V-C include: outsourcing of evaluation of answer scripts at the cost of more  than Rs 50 lakh, tender irregularities in awarding maintenance work of the varsity, appointment of a nodal agency for distance education and causing monetary loss to the varsity with his actions.
