“Governor Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala is expected to take against Dharwad University Vice Chancellor, why is nothing happening in the case of University of Mysore (UoM) Vice Chancellor K S Rangappa, who is allegedly facing lot of charges,” asked Save University Forum president K S Shivaramu.
Addressing press persons here on Tuesday, Shivaramu, said based on a report submitted by Justice Bhaktvatsala Committee regarding KSOU recruitment violation, the Governor himself has recommended action against the VC within a month. “Even after seven months, no action been taken against Rangappa. The allegation is more severe than that of VC of Dharwad. People are left to wonder why Governor is hesitating to take action against Rangappa.”
“When he is involved in all sorts of violations, how can the government permit him to go ahead with recruitment which was notified recently. The government, after realising there were violations, immediately stayed the process. But the UoM is going on with its online process. It is condemable,” he said. “UoM authorities should stop online application process, otherwise there will be protests when Vice President Hamid Ansari visits to Mysuru to take part in the centenary celebrations on June 22.”
Continuing further, he said, “There should be no recruitment process during Rangappa’s tenure which will be over in six months’ time. If he is allowed to continue, there are serious threats to UoM as it may get derecognised by the UGC on the lines of KSOU.”
UoM Research Scholars Association president Gopal, Vishwakarma Mahamandala president C T Acharya, UoM Dalit student forum president Mahesh Susale, Nayaka community welfare forum president Dyavappa Nayaka were present during the press meet.
Letter to PM
Shivaramu also mentioned that he will write to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking CBI probe against Governor and his office for failing to take necessary action against Rangappa.
