Cuttack: Ravenshaw University vice chancellor PC Sarangi returned to his office on Tuesday after Chancellor and Governor SC Jamir did not accept his resignation.
Sarangi had resigned on Monday over student clash due to political interference in the varsity. He had earlier said that political parties are brainwashing students of the varsity and taking them away from academics.
The VC has 10 more months left in his tenure that will end in December this year. It may be noted that while the students have said they will not give up their agitation, earlier too many VCs of Ravenshaw had to face the pressure of students’ resistance.
The students have meanwhile said that the administration always directs them to the Executive Committee when they demand improvement in infrastructure or bring complaints against irregularities in the institution. “We are thus seeking support of political leaders who are also part of the EC,” a student protestor said.
