A week after he met Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan,Yuva Sena president Aditya Thackeray on Thursday met Governor K Sankaranarayanan and sought removal of Mumbai University Vice-Chancellor Dr Rajan Welukar. Thackeray also submitted a memorandum listing various problems faced by students in the past few days.
Officials indicated that a new pro-vice-chancellor would be appointed at the university soon.
Thackeray told reporters after the meeting that they would expose more irregularities during Welukars tenure if action was not taken against him immediately. We have demanded action against Dr Rajan Welukar owing to the recent problems in conducting examinations, he said.
Thackeray had met Chavan last week,after Welukar suspended seven senate members for creating ruckus during the budget meeting. He had sought the resignation of higher and technical education minister Rajesh Tope and the vice chancellor for mishandling examinations. He had also posted an open letter on Facebook demanding action over 14 issues ranging from problems in admission process,mistake in issuing hall tickets and question paper goofups in recent days.
Tope had also met Governor earlier to discuss issues related to the varsity. The posts of registrar and controller of examinations were filled after the meeting.
