Former Bharathiar University students demand cancellation of appointments

Covai Post Network

COIMBATORE: Former students of Bharathiar University on Monday urged the District Collector to take steps to cancel the appointments made during the tenure of Vice-Chancellor A. Ganapathy, who was arrested on bribery charges.

In a memorandum to the Collector, they said that they have already petitioned a year ago to the Ministers and concerned Government officials about the irregularities in appointment of professors and also staff in this regard.

Ganapathy’s arrest has proved out charges and in view of this the appointments made by him should be immediately cancelled and appoint those on merit basis, they said.

Stringent action should be taken against those in HR department and also in Syndicate after carrying out detailed inquiry about their roles in the appointment, the memorandum said.
