Prof. S. K. Kak appointed as new Vice-Chancellor of Meerut University
LUCKNOW: Prof SP Ojha, vice-chancellor of Chaudhary Charan Singh University, Meerut, finally resigned from his post following a month long controversy after release of a CD which allegedly showed him taking a bribe.
Though no inquiry was done to verify the authenticity of the CD, Prof Ojha was reportedly asked to quit by the governor TV Rajeswar, who is also chancellor of the state universities.
The governor, said sources, was of the view that the person sitting on the post of vice-chancellor should be above all doubts.
However, the official press release issued by the Raj Bhawan said that governor has appointed Prof SK Kak, of the electronics and engineering department, institute of technology, Banaras Hindu University, as the new vice-chancellor of Meerut University following resignation of Prof Ojha.
The CD in question showed Prof Ojha sitting in a room and a person putting some money on the table.
