Mangaluru: K. Ramesh, a member of Mangaluru University Syndicate wrote a letter to the University Registrar on Wednesday March 31, urging him to issue a show-cause notice to Professor M. Jayashankar who had given â¹17 lakh to get the post of the vice-chancellor of a university and get his response within 24 hours.
According to a report by the Hindu daily, Ramesh through his letter said that newspapers on Tuesday carried reports that Mr. Jayashankar had paid â¹17 lakh as part payment to Prasad Attavar for getting the post of vice-chancellor and filed a police complaint upon getting defrauded. “Approaching the police without bringing the matter to the Syndicate’s notice has affected the image of the university,” he said.
He also stated that it was illegal to pay money to get a university post and such acts would demean the institution, the Syndicate as well as the government. Ramesh demanded that the University should ask for a response from the professor and clarification be issued to media houses, Mr. Ramesh said.
“A special meeting of the Syndicate would be called on April 5 and all issues, including the professor’s response and legal opinion, would be placed before it to take a suitable decision,” University Vice-Chancellor P.S. Yadapadithaya told The Hindu.
