BANGALORE: The Akhila Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishat (ABVP) has demanded immediate recall of Governor H R Bhardwaj, who is also the Chancellor of state universities, for allegedly ‘safeguarding many corrupt and tainted vice-chancellors and Syndicate members in return for huge monetary gains’.
A press note by ABVP on Friday stated, “Be the appointment of Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) VC Dr H Maheshappa or the recent Syndicate appointments at Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, his unethical and corrupt practice misusing the high power office, has reached its pinnacle.”
The student body has opposed the nomination of Dr D V Chalapathy, Dr Prashant Marla K and Dr Pradeep Chandra Shetty by Bhardwaj into the Syndicate of RGUHS.
They alleged that they are highly influential, with two of them having backing from liquor barons.
“The Akhila Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishat strongly condemns this corrupt act of Governor HR Bhardwaj and demands his expulsion immediately,” the press note stated.
