Dr Sharma not to join as VC
As suspected, selection of Dr Rajendra Kumar Sharma as Vice Chancellor of Gondwana University, Gadchiroli, could only be a farce. He was never expected to join the new assignment.
The curtain on the suspected drama has been raised by the Chancellor Bhagatsingh Koshyari himself. The University ha received a letter from Koshyari stating that Dr Sharma will not assume the charge.
The selection process will have to be carried out again.
Dr Sharma, a renowned teacher of Mathematics at IIT, Delhi and holding Research Chair in Switzerland was a surprise choice for the post.
The name of Sharma was announced on March 23. For over one month he did not even communicate with the University Registrar or other officers.
VC of Kavikulguru Kalidas Sanskrit University Dr Shrinivasa Varakhedi is holding additional charge as VC of this university, since Dr Namdeo Kalyankar retired on September 7, 2020.
The suspicion expressed by The Live Nagpur early this month came true. Dr Varakhedi will continue to hold the charge.
