“The state election commission needs to watch the university’s foundation day function on Sunday . Over 70 per cent of the guests are RSS people ,” Tikender Panwar , a top CPM leaders in the state said .
“Instead of inviting eminent academicians the VC has invited BJP MP Chandan Mitra on the opening day of the function ,” said Panwar .
The CPM has further alleged that the office of the VC has become a den of corruption and such activities are being promoted to grab money for private gains .
“We demand a special audit of the foundation day celebrations as it has been alleged that many sections including private universities are being asked to fund the event ,” Panwar alleged .
“We have already pointed out the glaring decisions of the VC to award honorary degrees to some of the most undeserving people like Rajiv Shukla M.P.,” he said .
The CPM has also alleged that the VC’s wife is chairing important sessions of the university even though she is not qualified to do so .
“Just being a spouse of the VC isn’t good enough to chair official sessions ,”Panwar said .
It may be mentioned that the 43 year university campus in summer hill hardly has an academic environment and is instead a hotbed of politics with the ABVP , NSUI and the SFI fighting for supremacy .
