The Management Council (MC) meeting, called by RTMNU, to discuss issue of providing relief to the 250 blacklisted colleges, was adjourned amidst uproar by members. The members termed the RTMNU’s affidavit, submitted in the High Court regarding the 250 colleges, totally different from Faculty’s decision. The growing uproar by the members forced adjournment of the MC meeting again. The all-important discussion on questions-answers to be raised in the Senate meeting to be held on November 28 could not be held because of adjournment of the MC meeting. Now, the next meeting of Management Council could be called on November 27.
The Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University’s Senate member Mahesh Nimbarte raised a Call Attention Motion over Vice-Chancellor Dr Vilas Sapkal’s statement given to media.
