PRINCIPALS AND teachers of degree colleges have locked horns with LU Registrar KN Pandey.
The principals have resolved to give a memorandum to the Governor- Chancellor TV Rajeswar demanding Pandey’s transfer from the varsity. They alleged that he was raising “unjustified objections” on the committee report filed by the panel after inspection of the colleges vying for affiliation.
Lashing out at the registrar, the principals said the registrar was creating hindrances that would hit the government’s intention to make higher education available to all those who are keen to study. Citing a case, the principals said that Pandey is objecting to give affiliation to one of the colleges to run commerce stream because there is not adequate staff in the science faculty in that college.
According to the principals, he is putting forth baseless arguments that don’t come under his purview. LUACTA chief and principal of a degree college said that the registrar had no power to withhold any file of affiliation that was cleared by the panel of inspection committee. His task is to table the file at the executive council meeting for discussion and not to put any hindrances whatsoever.
LUACTA president Molendu said, “We will mention all such instances wherein he tried to create hurdles and delayed the proceedings. We would also demand Raj Bhawan to transfer him to some other university.”
The principals are also planning to take up this matter with the Chief Minister and other top shots in the government. “We’re bent upon to fight out a decisive battle with the registrar so that a similar situation does not arise again,” said a principal while pleading anonymity.
LU registrar KN Pandey, however, refuted all allegations levelled by the principals and teachers. On the other hand the principals are in no mood to give up.
Shortly, a meeting of degree college principals would be convened in which they would unanimously frame a charge-sheet against the registrar and would then submit the same to Raj Bhawan, Chief Minister and other officials in the department.
