Jammu Tawi, December 25
The University of Jammu (JU) which is marred in several controversies owing to mal-administration by incumbent Self styled honest Vice Chancellor Prof Ramji Dass Sharma, have also failed to do justice with academics in off-site campuses as the Kathua campus has been deprived of English stream last eight years.
Addressing the press-conference here today, Jammu Youth Forum (JYF) University President Deepak Kumar informed that in the year 2007 when Prof Ramji Dass Sharma was Rector Kathua campus, the posts of Assistant Professors in the streams of English and MBA were advertised for appointments. Accordingly interviews were held for both the streams, but ignoring well qualified aspirants with NET/SET in MBA subjects who deserved preference in the interview, a female candidate of commerce subject who was scholar and blue eyed of the then Rector Prof Ramji Dass Sharma , was allegedly selected for the post of Assistant Professor MBA Kathua campus rejecting deserving candidates of the concerned subject MBA which speaks enough of ingrained tendency of nepotism and favoritism of so called a very honest person now sitting at helms of varsity affairs.
He further disclosed that about three months before interview for the post of Assistant Professor English for Kathua campus, the interview in the same stream was held in Department of English Jammu University and the then Top officer of varsity wanted a particular female candidate to be selected for the post which was reportedly resisted by the then HOD of English and whole process of interview was deferred. JYF members demanded Governor of the State who is Chancellor of Jammu University to constitute a full fledged enquiry committed involving the investigating agencies of the State to look into and probe the irregularities took place during the two years tenure of Prof R.D Sharma.
