Former MLC G Madhusudana has sent a letter to Governor Vajubhai Rudhabhai Wala requesting him to cancel the convocation programme of University of Mysore scheduled on December 13.
Sharing this information at a press meet here in the city on Tuesday, he said, “Vice-Chancellor of University of Mysore, Prof K S Rangappa, along with a few others, is facing criminal charges based on the recommendations of Justice Bhaktavatsala committee report. Recently, the high court even nailed down the accused and closed the doors on them while they were trying to escape prosecution. But it is unfortunate that the VC has made all arrangements to conduct the convocation of the UoM on Dec 13. It is improper to conduct two convocation ceremonies in an academic year according to law. Adding to it, the high court has denied the anticipatory bail to Prof Rangappa. So I have sent a letter to the Governor, requesting him to cancel the convocation scheduled on December 13 and direct the state government to hand over the case to CBI, as this case has got international ramifications.”
“Prof Rangappa along with others has cheated hundreds of students and is facing criminal charges for irregularities in the KSOU. Today the varsity has been de-recognised by the UGC and is struggling hard to restart. So I request the Governor to suspend Prof Rangappa and nominate an honest person,” he added.
