NEW DELHI: Supreme Court on Tuesday directed West Bengal governor C V Ananda Bose, who is also the chancellor of state-run universities, to appoint six suitable persons as vice-chancellors from a list of candidates provided by the state government. “Let these six be appointed immediately.”
Attorney general R Venkataramani, appearing for the chancellor, apprised SC that he has approved six names from the list sent by the state govt.The Trinamool Congress govt in the state is involved in a running feud with Bose over how the state’s universities should be run.
Hoping for an amicable solution to the tussle, the apex court bench said it may consider setting up a search committee later to shortlist candidates for appointment as vice-chancellors in the remaining state-run universities.
