“The corruption of KSOU has put the future of more than 5 lakh students at stake. The role of the then Vice Chancellor of KSOU, Prof K S Rangappa, Registrar and Registrar of evaluation are visible in the corruption and the investigation should be handed over to the CBI,” said ‘Mysuru Vishwa Vidyalaya Ulisi Horata Samithi’ convener, P Jayaraja Hegde.
He was speaking at a press meet held at a private hotel on Wednesday.
“For the development of KSOU, 66 courses in UG and PG were commenced at the KSOU under the guidelines of UGC. When Prof K S Rangappa took over as the VC of the KSOU, more than 300 courses were started in association with private institutions. More than 4000 centers were opened in Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Punjab, West Bengal, Delhi, Jammu Kashmir and other states without any permission. Due to this, KSOU lost its accreditation and has put the future of lakhs of students at stake. Investigation should be made against the corruption charges prevailing over K S Rangappa,” he said.
Convener M G Suresh Gowda and others were present.
