Varsity chief continued with misgovernance says JNUTA
| Tuesday | 14th January, 2020
New Delhi: The Jawaharlal Nehru University Teachers' Association has said that despite a referendum where 93 per cent of voting faculty members had decided to remove Vice-Chancellor Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar from his position as the varsity chief, Kumar has continued with his "misgovernance" of the university, which had culminated in the January 5 attacks inside the JNU campus, when a masked mob entered the varsity with sticks and iron rods and ran riot for almost three hours.
The JNUTA said that 300 out of the total 586 faculty members listed had turned up for the referendum despite the V-C's attempts "to throttle dissent on campus" and 279 of them had asked for Kumar's removal as V-C.
Moreover, the teachers' association said that it had also submitted a dossier with allegations against the V-C to the HRD Ministry.
The teachers have thus claimed that such serious allegations against Kumar make a "comprehensive case" for his removal.
In addition, the teachers have also said that the V-C had put the entire recruitment process under a shadow of doubt by allowing for the recruitment of teachers without appropriate expertise in the field.
