TIRUCHY: A member of the Syndicate of Bharathidasan University (BDU) has alleged that a retired principal of an aided college had been attending meetings of Syndicate. In his petition to the registrar, C Murugadas described the member’s participation as unlawful and action.

Murugadas said Sekar was elected to the Syndicate in December 2014 from among the category of ‘College Principals’ working with the University. Sekar retired on May 31, 2016, which means he ceases to be a member on the same date.

Speaking to Express, Murugadas said Sekar was unlawfully allowed to attend the Syndicate meetings between June 2016 to June 2017. Any member who has retired from the principal position is not eligible to attend Syndicate meetings as it is considered violation of UGC protocol, the Syndicate member pointed out.  

The petition also suggested the registrar initiate steps stop Sekar from attending further meetings of Syndicate and to recover all the payments made to him during June 2016 to 2017 as Syndicate member.
When contacted, BDU registrar Babu Rajendran refuted allegations levelled against Sekar and said Sekar has been already appointed as principal in one of the self-financing colleges after his retirement.
