Indo-Bangladesh Trade- End of Bilateralism

January 11, 1975 University's executive council had alleged that the Vice-Chancellor had shown ''undue favouritism" in recruitment and promotion of teaching and non- teaching staff. The Vice-Chancellor was accused of having appointed his relatives and acquaintances in the University. The committee hi its report cited examples of promotion of members of the teaching staff who did not possess the stipulated minimum qualifications. The same was true of admissions to various courses in the University and the conduct of examinations. The committee confirmed that examination marks of the children and wards of university officials and certain politicians, including one Congress MP, had been tampered with to make possible their admission to higher courses. Among those whose marks were thus doctored was, according to the committee, the Vice-Chancellor's son. The Vice- Chancellor had also personally intervened to grant admission to large numbers of students to the post-graduate course in chemistry. The committee also charged the Vice-Chancellor with extravagant and improper expenditure on a foreign tour and on lavish parties (at which, not surprisingly, the guests of honour were generally prominent politicians and ministers of the state government).
