BENGALURU: The High Court on Thursday observed that a university is meant for students and not for management or bureaucracy during the hearing of a petition relating to the dispute between two factions of management of Alliance University.
“What has happened to those 7,500 students? Have they appeared for examination or are they sitting at home? Ultimately, students are the consumers in an education system and their interest needs to be protected on priority,” Justice Ashok B Hinchigeri said.
He was hearing the petition filed by Madhukar G Angur, director of Alliance Business School and First Chancellor of the Alliance University. Madhukar Angur has challenged the appointment of a one-man commission to look into the alleged irregularities in the university. Additional Advocate General A S Ponnanna informed that a report was submitted on November 8.
