I’m ready to resign: V-C BGSBU
GK NEWS NETWORK
Rajouri, June 21: Terming the recent protests by some B Tech students as unfortunate, the Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University Vice-Chancellor, Masud Choudhary today said he was ready to resign from his post, if it could help in furthering academic excellence and development of the varsity.
Addressing a press conference, Choudhary alleged that some elements were hell bent upon to tarnish the image of the University, which could not be tolerated. “We will not allow external interference in matters concerning the university”, he said adding, “We will not allow anyone to tarnish the image of the University which has established its credibility not only within the state, but in the country.”
Giving his version of the incidents that rocked the varsity campus, last week, he said it was only few students who tried to take the entire university and its management hostage for their ‘vested interests.’ “We had conceded eight out of nine demands well before the incident, mentioned by the students in the charter of demands submitted to us”, he said.
“There was only agreement and disagreements on some of the issues between the University and students, which is a part of University culture”, he said, while claiming that the strikes and protests were also usual phenomenon in all the Universities in the state and outside.
He said there was no justification of violence and “well organized attempt to disrupt the B. Tech Entrance Test by some students on June 13, who also damaged the university property”.
He said a misinformation campaign had been launched by some vested interests against the University and its management. The number of students injured during their clash with the police was exaggerated and baseless allegations were leveled against the management.
The University, he said, bearing the name of the great Sufi saint Baba Ghulam Badshah was most peaceful place with excellent ambience for pursuit of knowledge. “No wonder, it took only five years to blossom into a centre of excellence which many high profile visitors to its campus described as miracle on the mountains.” he said.
