CRISIS IN AMU, NO VC

Inside India

The post of vice-chancellor at the Aligarh Muslim University is up for grabs, setting off a fierce legal battle over who gets to assume charge and pushing the historic institution into the throes of a crisis again. A section of the university’s staff has frequently been accused of treating the institution as their fiefdom. Senior deans took turns to be pro-vice-chancellors since PK Abdul Azis retired as the vice-chancellor in January. Matters came to a head when a dean, the next in line, moved the Allahabad High Court against a decision of his predecessor to nominate a retired IAS officer to the post. The Supreme Court, after hearing the case, barred anybody from the university from assuming charge, handing over the reins to the executive council. The university currently has no vice-chancellor.
