NOD TO DEGREES
1-agenda meeting upsets PU senate

Chandigarh:

Panjab University senate members are not happy over the calling of a special meeting on April 21for just one agenda item — to decide on the final approval to confer honorary degrees on Infosys trustee Sudha N Murthy and Isro chairman Dr K Sivan.


While some have called it an utter wastage of resources and money, some say there is always a pre-convocation meeting just

before the convocation, where the matter can be discussed. However, PU calendar says the approval of senate is required for conferring honorary degrees and after senate approves the names, it is forwarded to the chancellor for final approval.

“I think holding a special meeting for this agenda is an utter wastage of public money and I would not like to burden the sources crunched PU for this purpose. Hence, will not attend it,” said Prof Chaman Lal, a senate member.

A few senate members on Saturday wrote to the vice-chancellor conveying their disagreement. “It is a futile exercise. This is sheer wastage of money, time and resources. It is not a controversial issue where you require a senate meeting. This agenda needs no discussion,” said senate member Rabinder Nath Sharma.

The senate meeting scheduled for April 29 has also been postponed and the new dates of the senate have not been decided yet. The university convenes a meeting in March to discuss the budget for the next fiscal, which was also not convened. “If PU had convened the senate in March, this issue would not have arrived since the approvals for the honorary degrees would have been sought in that meeting. Skipping the March meeting is also a violation of calendar and now PU wants to waste money just for one agenda, which has been approved by a high-powered committee,” Sharma said.

Moreover, the syndicate in its meeting on April 10 had turned down the request of the 19 senate members to hold a special senate meeting to discuss the issue related with the re-employment of principals after 60 years of age. “If a special meeting of the senate is called as per statutory demand of 19 senators on the same date, on April 21, with this minor agenda added to it, I can attend the special meeting, which will have some justification. I may agree or disagree with 19 senators who signed for the special meeting, still, I respect their right of making statutory demand for calling the meeting,” said Prof Chaman Lal.
