Double trouble for RGPV V-C
RAJIV GANDHI Proudyogiki Vishwavidyalaya Vice-Chancellor Prof M C Gupta, who is in the dock over the Raj Bhavan’s enquiry into the alleged irregularities in appointments of teaching staff last year, appears to be in for more trouble. Now, the State Technical Education Department asked the V-C to put the details of appointments before the university executive
The meeting of the executive council on Wednesday would be attended by Principal Secretary, Technical Education Department Dilip Mehra. He is member of the council.
Sources said Department of Technical Education directed the V-C to furnish detailed report on the teaching staff appointments, made on the basis of advertisements published in November 2004, before the executive council.
The letter dated March 23 and signed by Additional Secretary of the department asked the V-C to include this matter as an agenda for the meeting. The letter of the Technical Education Department gives reference of a question raised in Vidhan Sabha in this regard by MLA Hakam Singh Chadhar.
The Raj Bhavan (Governor’s office) is already conducting the enquiry into the controversial interviews conducted in December 2004 and its results announced in November 2005. The Raj Bhavan is also conducting enquiry into some other in-house controversial postings of senior personnel, who were on deputation to the university and also into alleged financial irregularities by the Vice-Chancellor.
The Principal Secretary of the Higher Education Department, Dilip Mehra, while talking to the Hindustan Times conceded that the Vice-Chancellor has been asked to put forth some ‘clarifications’ regarding the appointments of teaching staff before the executive council on March 29. He also mentioned that some clarifications have also been sought about some point of budget of the university that was put before the finance committee of the university recently.
“We have asked the V-C to include these matters in meeting agenda so that the things could be looked into in details,’’ Mehra said. When asked about action in the matter, he said that first the details would be looked into.
