Patna: The Patna High Court on Tuesday asked the
secretariat of the Chancellor of Universities, Devanand
Konwar, who is also the state Governor, to clear its stand on
a PIL seeking appointment of full-fledged vice-chancellors.

The order was passed by a division bench comprising
justices SK Katriyar and Vikas Jain on a PIL filed by a
citizen Janardan Singh.

The bench asked the chancellor`s secretariat to clarify
its stand on the issues raised in the petition soon.

The PIL had alleged that most of the universities in
Bihar did not have full-fledged vice-chancellors and sought
the court`s intervention in this regard.

Apart from the Patna University, the varsities which do
not have full-fledged vice-chancellors are: Magadh University,
Veer Kunwar University, B R Ambedkar University and B N Mandal
University.

The petitioner alleged that the academic work and
functioning of the universities were badly affected in absence
of full-fledges VCs there.
