The statement said the meeting held Thursday was not helpful as they were not allowed to discuss evidence against V-C Chandra Krishnamurthy.

“HRD ministry said that Vice-Chancellor’s ‘fake CV’ or the fact that she plagiarised an entire book has nothing to do with us. They said it will not affect our degrees,” the statement added.
