Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has alleged that the Delhi University Vice-Chancellor has been threatening principals of 28 Delhi government funded colleges against appointing the candidates suggested by the government for Chairman post of the Governing Bodies.

¬†”Before the AAP government in Delhi, any member from the ruling party in Delhi used to be the chairman of the governing body of the Delhi University, but now because it is the AAP who wants to work for the people, the university has planned to hold election to have a new chairman,” AAP’s Burari MLA Sanjeev Jha told DNA.

“Not only this, they are also putting pressure through the vice-chancellor’s office, so that nobody from the AAP can be the chairperson of these bodies in any college,” he added.

The VC is being accused of putting pressure on the college authorities at Satyawati College to nominate Rajiv Nayan,a close relative of the VC as Chairperson of college’s Governing Body.“Both the Satyawati College and the Delhi government have agreed to membership disqualification of Nayan from DU because it will violate the university’s Act that says one person cannot be the member of a panel in more than two colleges. And, he is already a member of 2 more colleges,” the AAP legislator said.
