WARANGAL: With the state government’s decision to expedite appointment of vice-chancellors to universities, several senior professors have reportedly intensified lobbying for the coveted VC posts of Kakatiya University as well as other universities.
According to sources, KU in-charge registrar prof Khaja Altaf Hussain and retired professor K Sitarama Rao are said to be ahead in the race for KU VC post and names of prof G Damodar, prof K Omprakash and SDLCE director prof Ch Dinesh Kumar are also making rounds.
Prof Sitarama Rao with a good academic track record of over 10 years is said to be one of the prominent names. He had participated actively in the Telangana movement and has retired from service now.
On the other hand, in-charge registrar prof Khaja Altaf Hussain, who is said to have earned a name among higher authorities as a good administrator, is also lobbying for the post.
“Since there is a tough competition for the VC post at KU, if at all Khaja Altaf is not chosen for the post, we are expecting that he will be appointed at some other varsity,” said a faculty at KU.
