UP governor returns Mohammad Ali Jahaur University bill
Lucknow, May 9 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Governor T V Rajeswar has returned the controversial Mohammad Ali Jauhar private university Bill for setting up a university in the private sector in Rampur.
According to sources, Rajbhawan has returned the bill saying it has some flaws under the guidelines set up by the Supreme Court for setting up private university in the country.
The Governor pointed out that the matter relating to the land and funds for starting a private university was not presented in a proper manner in the Bill. It took around 13 months for the Rajbhawan to return The Bill.
Earlier during his visit to Rampur last month, Mr Rajeswar had hinted that the bill contained some flaws.
The governor had already sent for Presidential references to a similar bill for setting up the university by the Mulayam Singh Yadav government in the public sector.
The Rajbhawan had also objected on the clause that state urban development minister Mohammad Azam Khan should be the life time pro-chancellor of the proposed university.
Lot of political heat was generated in the state over the setting up of the Maulana Mohammad Ali Jauhar university with Mr Khan directly criticizing the governor for stalling the process of the educational institute particularly for the muslims in western UP.
