Jadhav said the appointment of the pro-v-c would ease his burden. The flow of complaints these days is so much. In a recent meeting of vice chancellors,the Chancellor had expressed concern over the situation,as vice chancellors cannot get time to chalk out the vision for the varsity. Now with a pro-v-c in place,I can spend more time for the other developmental activities, he said.
Jadhav said he would be working on the four projects of books pending for last three years. I had started working on these books but could not find time in the last few months. Now,I can work on them, he said.
Jadhav also mentioned that he had suggested three names when he assumed the V-C office.
At that time,there were some non-Marathi names coming up for the post which would not have been acceptable in the UoP. After that I was informed that the post has been lapsed since it was not filled for the last seven years. But last month,the Chancellors office again requested to send three names.
