KOLKATA: Calcutta University Pro-Vice-Chancellor Sugata Sen has resigned citing personal reasons and West Bengal Education Minister Partha Chatterjee today said he was within his rights to quit before the end of his tenure.

Sen, who confirmed his resignation when contacted, had taken over from Dhrubojyoti Chatterjee in 2015 and was from the commerce faculty. His tenure in office was till 2019.

Chatterjee told a press conference that Sen, had not told him about the move before taking the step.

"How can I say why he took such a step? I can't also comment on why he has quit before the end of his term. If someone wants to return to teaching assignments it is not bad," he said to a question.

Chatterjee said the government was considering some names for the post but did not elaborate.
