Rabindra Bharati University (RBU) vice-chancellor Sabyasachi Basu Ray Chaudhury on Thursday sent his resignation to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, alleging that he was denied entry to his office by Trinamool Congress-backed students and teachers for over two weeks.

“I had written twice to the Chief Minister to relieve me of my duties,” said the V-C.

The V-C claimed, “Some students and teaching staff have continuously been disturbing me and stopping me from entering my office. I informed the Education Minister about the matter and he assured me that it would not happen again. However, despite his assurance, such incidents took place. And thus, I decided to resign from the post.” “Though the agitating teachers and students don’t bear any political flag, they are the supporters of the ruling party,” alleged the V-C.
