The irate members also raised slogans against VC while hundreds of students from Wardha who gathered outside university premises tried to force themselves in the premises. The police resorted to mild lathi charge in order to disperse the crowd. The senate meeting which began on peaceful note on Thursday suddenly went for a toss and was adjourned till further notice. The annual budget too was eventually disapproved.

    While the meeting was on Senate Member D.K. Agrawal stood up and tried to submit a resolution to the Chair, which was trashed. As the house got adjourned  the members started shouting slogans, expressed their distrust on the Vice Chancellor and asked him to resign. They also threw the papers in the house.

    The Senate Members D.K. Agrawal and Baban Taywade while talking to the scribes said the Senate of the RTMNU is under a statutory duty as per the provisions of Section 26(3) of the Maharashtra Universities Act,1994 to evaluate the actions and decisions of the university administration. The members reiterated that they had lost their trust, faith and confidence in the administration. They also aimed to resolve that the administration under the leadership of Dr. Sapkal should not be permitted to incur any further expenditure from public funds.

    Earlier in the morning, the University premises in front of Maharajbagh was under heavy police cover, since the varsity was expecting the engineering students who were not allowed jumping the premises to disrupt the proceedings of the meeting.
