UoM VC Prof G Hemantha Kumar on Friday said that the varsity administration had written to the Election Commission seeking permission for GT Devegowda’s presence at the event.
Consequently, research at the varsity has been affected since a faculty member cannot guide more than five research scholars.

We have lost more than 150 teachers to superannuation in the past five years.
