The Telangana Congress has alleged large-scale irregularities in the recruitment of teachers in Sathavahana University in Karimnagar and also misappropriation of funds, and sought an enquiry by the CBCID.
Spokesperson of the Congress Konagala Mahesh alleged at a press conference that the in-charge Vice Chancellor and in-charge Registrar were involved in the irregularities as they violated all the norms of the University Grants Commission (UGC) in appointing assistant professors.
He also alleged that Deputy Chief Minister Kadiyam Srihari was in know of the things happening at the university and has not taken any action thus raising doubts over his role in the scam. He said several academic consultants were first denied jobs stating they were not eligible but the same were given appointments a few months later against all norms.
Mr. Mahesh said there were doubts over the appointments done in 2015 and information obtained under RTI has proved irregularities. “Money has changed hands and we will provide evidence if the CBCID enquiry is ordered,” the Congress leader said demanding that the Government should take action against those responsibwithin seven days.
(SUJAC) members staged a dharna in front of the main gate of the university on Thursday demanding the Government supply of fine rice and other food material to students in hostels also.
The committee general secretary G. Janardhan said that Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao had promised fine rice scheme to the university hostels, but in vain. He also demanded that the Government increase the scholarships amount from Rs. 2,000 per month to Rs. 3,000 per month.
