Why Is The Rashtrapati Bhawan & The Govt. In a Deadlock Over VC of Vishwa-Bharati?
The HRD Ministry is locked in a silent tussle over the fate of Visva-Bharati Vice Chancellor Sushant Dattagupta with Rashtrapati Bhavan, which has informally conveyed its unwillingness to sack the university head, sources said.
In its final report to President Pranab Mukherjee, the HRD Ministry had recommended Dattagupta’s removal on grounds of gross misconduct and dereliction of duty, as first reported by <a href="http://indianexpress.com/">The Indian Express</a> on September 22.
This report had set the stage for what, perhaps, would have been the first-ever sacking of a central university vice-chancellor.
