Delhi University's Pro-Vice Chancellor (PVC), Vivek Suneja, resigned from his post on Wednesday at what university officials believe to be a very critical juncture.
According to university officials, Suneja resigned due to personal reasons and his resignation was accepted by the university on Wednesday itself.
The four-year-degree programme was a project that was fully supported by Suneja and according to university officials the programme, which has to be initiated from the coming academic year, may suffer a setback because of the resignation.
"The Pro-Vice Chancellor, along with the Vice Chancellor, has been instrumental in informing people about the provisions of the four-year degree programme and thus in getting it passed. He was deeply involved in the process of formulating a structure for its implementation. His sudden resignation is shocking," said a member of the task force for the four-year-degree programme.
Suneja's resignation comes after another important resignation earlier.
