West Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose, who is also the chancellor of all state-run universities, removed Jadavpur University (JU) officiating Vice Chancellor Buddhadeb Sau on disciplinary grounds on Saturday evening.

The decision was taken a night before the university was scheduled to hold its convocation on Sunday.

Bose has constituted an enquiry committee to probe several complaints received against the interim VC who is also a Mathematics professor.

“The chancellor removed Jadavpur University interim VC Buddhadeb Sau from the chair for defying orders. An enquiry committee has also been set up to probe several complaints received by his office against Sau,” a Raj Bhavan official told the news agency, PTI.

BOSE RECEIVES COMPLAINTS AGAINST VC

News18 has learnt that the Chancellor received complaints against Professor Sau who was allegedly defying Supreme Court orders.

It is alleged that students have complained to the Chancellor’s office that they were asked to spend their money for the convocation convened by the interim VC under political pressure.

The Chancellor has also sought legal opinion on whether the money can be recovered from the salary of Professor Sau and others responsible for convening the convocation.

It is also learnt that the Governor is determined to set up the universities as per law and the decisions of the apex court.
