West Bengal Governor CV Anand Bose said in a video message on Thursday that he would continue his fight to keep the state’s universities free from corruption and violence. This message of the governor has come at a time when there is a tussle between the state government and the Raj Bhavan regarding the appointments of interim vice-chancellors by the governor in some universities of the state.
Governor Bose said, “I want the state’s universities to be violence-free and the best in the country.” He mentioned the names of Rabindra Nath Tagore, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and Swami Vivekananda, promising that he would end “corruption.” Will continue to fight for “free education world”. Asked about the Raj Bhavan’s recent move to appoint interim vice-chancellors, he said, “I appointed interim vice-chancellors in view of the apex court’s decision against the appointments made by the state government in the past.”
“There were allegations of corruption, sexual harassment and political interference on the vice-chancellors appointed earlier… Five vice-chancellors who resigned from their posts told me that they were threatened,” he claimed. It is said that the next generation of Bengal is the biggest heritage of the state.
