Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Higher and Technical
Education Minister, Laxmikant Sharma on Friday told the State
Assembly that no provisions of UGC, Reservation and University Act were overlooked in the appointments made in the Makhanlal Chaturvedi National Journalism and Communications University.
The matter was raised by Congress party`s Govind Singh
during the Question Hour, which went off smoothly today after
two-days of ruckus created by the Opposition leading to
adjournment over the issue of arrest of Congress MLA, Kalpana
Parulekar for allegedly morphing photgraph of RSS Head Mohan
Bhagwat with MP Lokayukta, P P Naolekar.
He alleged that the General Council of the University
has overlooked provisions of reservation and UGC guidelines in
the appointment of two assistant professors aged over 65 years
without publishing any advertisement and the University`s
Registrar too has objected on it.
However, Sharma said that as per the UGC guidelines a
person upto the age of 70 years can be appointed as Professor
and therefore, it cannot be said that rules were overlooked in
Following intervention from Speaker Ishwardas Rohani, the
Minister assured the member that in case he submits the
complaint in writing, then he will get the matter probed
within three months.
