Hyd varsity readies for a major overhaul

The students have expressed displeasure over Srivastava taking over as the interim VC as he was chairman of the controversial committee that recommended the suspension of five students including Rohith Vemula.

Major changes expected

In the days to come several changes in the administration are expected to be effected. As a first measure the university would look to replace the interim VC. Srivastava had appealed for calm and even assured the students the university had not lodged a complaint or approached a court against the students.

However the students are refusing to relent for now and this has led to the university suggesting a change of interim VC.

In addition to this there may be a proposal seeking the resignation of Prof Podile who is on indefinite leave. The students have demanded that he resign from his post with immediate effect.

Moreover the administration of the university has been blamed by the Union HRD ministry for mishandling the situation. These aspects are likely to increase the call for the resignation of Prof. Podile.
