Konwar appoints VC, pro-VCs amid protests in Bihar

By The Assam Tribune

PATNA, March 15 � Outgoing Bihar Governor Devanand Konwar has appointed one more VC and two pro-VCs even as the demand for probe into the allegation that he took money for appointment of VC and pro-VCs in universities has intensified.

According to a notification issued late last evening, Anjani Kumar Sinha has been appointed VC of Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur university, Raja Ram has been made pro-VC of Patna University and Padmasha Jha has been chosen for the same post in Bihar University, Muzaffarpur.

Konwar, facing protests from the ruling NDA over appointment of eight VCs and two pro-VCs, including that of Patna University Shambhunath Singh recently without consultation with the State Government, has been transfered to Tripura by President Pranab Mukherjee on March 9. According to the notification, Konwar would swap posts with DY Patil. The Patna High Court had earlier quashed appointment of six of the eight VCs by the Governor on the ground that the State Government was not consulted. But the same persons were later reappointed.

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has expressed displeasure over the unilateral appointments by the Chancellor. Deputy Chief Minister SK Modi has demanded that the Centre probe the appointments made by Konwar. � PTI
